Current Employee - Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN

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

Pros

Great people! Leading technology. Plenty of on line resources and training. Enough job specialization that you can find a niche where you do what you love and someone else will do the other stuff. You can make lots of money.

Cons

1st line managers are often geographically remote. For upper management, its all about the numbers; do not expect any personal consideration for unique circumstances. Money follows effort, but it takes lots of effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Year after year, we hear about salary increases being tied to a market reference point (midpoint for similar skills). Yet, we advertise that our people are the best. Please don't tell me I can't get a raise because I am above the market reference point, then sell me to a client as some sort of superman!

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Many great operational and logistical problems to solve. You can have as much opportunity as you want to take on. There are opportunities to move up in management for those that are hungry enough and can navigate the layers of managemnet.

    Cons

    On the whole no one changes here. There is minimal accountability. Every one is waiting for the next layoff to determine if they are the next duck shot in the shooting gallery. Mostly good people stuck in a company /plant long past it's heyday
