  1.  

    Technically challenging and rewarding, but getting steamrolled by shareholder roadmap

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Local management is in tune with employee concerns and peers are excellent engineers and technicians always willing to help.

    Cons

    Upper management is focused on 2015 roadmap and does not adequately communicate the technology roadmap for the company and how that translates into the different business areas and day-to-day jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perception is that 2015 roadmap will be met at ALL costs. This is destroying employee morale and hampering IBM's ability to constantly reinvent itself, adapt to the changing technology landscape, and even meet the roadmap's goals.

    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC

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

    Pros

    It's a job, it pays the bills (almost)

    Cons

    Average at best compensation and benefits, no regard for the employees, no innovation or excitement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not happy with the results (which you shouldn't be), you need to change the environment so that you're able to attract and retain the talent needed to win, not exist.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
