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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    IBM used to be a really good company.

    Cons

    IBM is going to reduce itself to nothing. The stock market in the last 6 months has been responding to this. IBM stock price dropped during the market recovery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourselfs
