Get in and get out or stagnate at the pace of inflation (if your lucky)

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

Pros

Excellent Company Reputation. Good 'first job'. Good 'bragging rights'.
Makes you feel special to be an IBMer..

Cons

Workforce is considered disposable. Executive pay is through the roof. The 400 thousand people that 'make it happen' are peripheral.

Benefits continue to be reduced. No longer the 'work here till you die - get a gold watch' corporate culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share you success with your people. Don't expect to grow 10% year to year EVERY year.

Treat your people like the assets they ARE.

    Company does not care about employees at all. They will work you to death. Very unstable.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was above average for equivalent jobs.

    Cons

    Company is very unstable. Constant furloughs and layoffs. Project Managers are very pushy, Managers always expect the impossible and no matter how many hours you give them, they want more more more. Worst company I ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a heart and invest in your people. Your company will sink if you don't grow employees that care about your company.

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

    Pros

    The people are the best. More than willing to take on new challenges and work together to help the customer. They keep up with technology for the employees; the ThinkPad is a great laptop/workstation.

    Cons

    The ongoing layoffs are hurting morale. Workloads are increasing to take up the slack and it is impacting the customers. Good talent is leaving the company. It's a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please find a direction. IBM used to be a tech leader. Where are the great ideas going to come from if all the people are gone?
