Current Employee - Software Engineer in Raleigh, NC

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Friendly coworkers, hard working employees, willing to share their expertise and support.

Cons

Cutting expenses (people) focus is wrong - is destroying the morale and the core strength of the company. Opportunities to try different jobs is small since usually moving to a different group request is rejected. Leadership - with a few exceptions - is out of touch with realities at working team level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus should be on people and keeping the talent. Every bad quarter translates into more cuts but no vertical mgmt change at the level that defines the roadmap....

Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Ibm can be very understanding when personal issues come up.
    They really are company centric which is good for stock holders.

    Cons

    They encourage micromanagement to the extreme degree which can be very limiting.
    They are not interested in the caring for the customer as much as the overall success of meeting the metrics on huge acoounts. This tends to be a disservice to the actual clients.
