Current Employee - Product Marketing Manager

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

As a big company, there are frameworks in place (which are missing from a smaller company) to provide context for creating and sharing information. There's also a diversity of areas to move on to when you're looking for your next position within the company, provided you're not looking to move up.

Cons

Marketing is an undervalued and under-funded area, which is constantly cut whenever the company goes through a downsizing, to the point where it's effectiveness is compromised. There's a move underfoot throughout all disciplines to outsource as many jobs overseas as possible, for cost cutting. Raises and bonuses are a joke during good times and bad.

    Former Employee - ASIC Hardware Engineer in Rochester, MN
    Former Employee - ASIC Hardware Engineer in Rochester, MN

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Get to work on some interesting ASIC hardware design projects

    Cons

    High stress, 7 day work weeks expected, high overtime expected, expected to work while on vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a plan for ASIC hardware. You are losing good people for lack of a plan/future, poor pay, high stress environment and you no longer promote innovation which is how IBM became a leader in the first place. Now, there is only management to the stock holders and leadership is only to your 2015 roadmap, ie, lack of a real growth plan.

    Pros

    Name recognition, international company, decent pay

    Cons

    Too many acquired companies make up a disjointed corporation with no consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell employees they have a career when all they really have is a job.
