Get Experience and Get Out

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Dubuque, IA

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
