Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

IBM does provide opportunities to learn, either on the job or through their online offerings.

Cons

Employees are NOT valued. Pay raises are non-existent for most. Promotions are nearly non-existent too. People management skills are very poor. When management doesn't know what else to do they blame the employees, start a new micro-management scheme and lay off everyone they can. Customer service is very poor. IBM would rather pay a penalty to be released from a contract than to fulfill the contract. IBM is using under-handed and dishonest means to avoid the customer requirements of on-shore business.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like people, not things. The rumors are constant and the fear of losing your job never ends.

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

    Pros

    Working on some of the most leading edge, exciting technology in the world. Chance to work with very intelligent people who are inventing the future.

    Cons

    A little worried how much of a future this part (semiconductor design and manufacturing) of IBM has. Number of products has decreased in recent years, so there are a fair number of people 'looking for things to do'. Some recent layoffs in 2013 hurt morale.

    Advice to Management

    More communication. There is communication, but some of it is a bit disingenuous and does not deal with the principle issues on the minds of people.
