Pros

You get to work with some very smart and dedicated people

Cons

This 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 ManagementAdvice

Get 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.

    Pros

    The depth and breadth of IBM skill is impressive. Everywhere you turn there is someone willing to help and make you better at your career. In IGS, you have the opportunity to work in many different industries and on smaller project teams.

    Cons

    IBM is huge and can be overwhelming at times. That said, they do a great job of making you feel part of the team.
