Used to be a great company

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Durham, NC

ProsYou get to work with some very smart and dedicated people

ConsThis company has lost any respect for the people it employs. The company constantly takes away from the employees in search of achieving its stated 2015 target for EPS. In 2013 there were no raises given and in 2014 they did away with any bonuses to the employees that typically work 60 - 80 hours per week. They will lay anybody off no no matter what their performance might be to save money. The morale in this company is very low and everybody is just collecting a paycheck until they get laid off.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to TJ Watson's vision of what is important in IBM. Take care of your customers. Become innovative again by developing something in-house instead of constantly through acquisitions. Reward your employees and provide some stability in the workplace. Get rid of unneeded processes and time wasters.

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