I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good technology, interesting problems to work on.

Cons

Ratio of demands to rewards is high. Either minimal or zero raises, minimal bonus at best, no profit sharing. Generally high pressure atmosphere at all levels of management. Typical expectation of being online and available at all hours of the day and weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you're going to expect so much out of people at least compensate them fairly.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good and competent people. Lots of learning opportunities. At least lower level management are trying to do the "right" things for the employee. Work-life balance is recognized and supported.

    Cons

    Top executive questionable with unclear business directions. At tough times, no clear leadership from above to articulate the strategy. Clear disconnect from top brass to the rank-n-file, even to lower on the management chain. Moral issue needs to be addressed properly.
