I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Best reasons to work here include opportunity to lead in many technology areas and great educational opportunity.

Cons

Some of the cons of working here are::while data as seen as a natural resource, employees are not. Benefits and opportunity are eroding - be it salary, health benefits, 401k (matching for the year only occurs if still on payroll as of year end, many jobs have moved outside of the US and to employees who have been with the company for less than 5 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Determine direction and value employees' contributions. Inspire employees for the future by including in strategic direction and aligning skills to the opportunities.

    Like most consulting service companies. Good, but not great, with benefits that are dwindling fast.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In GBS, especially public sector, if you have a sought-after IT skill, you will always stay busy. Then there's just the cachet of working at Big Blue. I'd only recommend it as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    It's always more give than take - they want 110% (sometimes much more) and somehow the benefits continue to diminish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the two-faced talk. You can't tell the world what a great year/quarter it was, then tell employees there's no bonus/raise/etc. because we didn't make the numbers.

    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do nurture a teaming culture, as long as it doesn't interfere with profits.

    Cons

    You are only given personal growth and training if it going to benefit the company's bottom line. Good benefits are a thing of the past as well with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What goes around comes around.
