    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.

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

    Pros

    Some parts of business still allow work from home but that is now changing as revenues fall short of expectations
    IBM brand still carries some weight but disappearing quickly

    Cons

    Lots of talk about being values driven company but Finance controls the company
    Relentless drive to offshore jobs even though it takes many more headcount it 'looks' cheaper

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 'business' needs to get control back from finance

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
