Former Employee - Project Manager in Washington, DC
Former Employee - Project Manager in Washington, DC

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

Pros

Great salary and benefits
Great people
Good work flexibility

Cons

Constant dumping of workload on people as they fire thousands
Expectations are undeliverable
Pressure to deliver is unrealistic
Internal competition is off the charts
Very little chance for advancement unless you are cut throat

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Give people a realistic schedule that they can meet and make the Personal Business Commitments something that can be achieved, instead of a way to penalize people, when you weren't giving them a high rating anyway, because you don't have any to give.
-Bring back a sense of community and loyalty in teams.
-People should not constantly fear for their jobs, it makes it hard to be productive.
