    Pros

    Worker-bees and low-level managers are overall good people. Most willing to help each other.
    Work-life balance and work-from-home is dependent on the department and your job role.

    Cons

    Personal growth is very slow. Benefits are now industry average. Company not investing in employees (like it use to) as technology rapidly changes. Your on your own to keep up. Compensation has drastically dwindle every since Roadmap 2015 announcement. Many U.S. jobs quietly sent overseas. Not a place to work if your hardware based.
    Most technical support folks work well over 40hrs per week including on-call duty after hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In past 10 years, IBM senior mgmt continues to find ways to take from employees. Pension program gone, employee stock program discount reduced from 15% to 5%, cash balance plan is making 1% past several years, 401k matching funds now being withheld until year-end . Those with salary increases are getting ~2%, if any occur at all. Bonus plan reduced to "1" rated performers only. Newest twist is furloughs. Overall leadership not portraying a strong business direction. Continual new buzzwords with no real bite in market place. Cloud Analytics Mobility Social and Security is spoken non-stop but understanding of what cloud is by average employee is a lost concept.

    Former Employee - Advisory Software Engineer in Poughkeepsie, NY
    Former Employee - Advisory Software Engineer in Poughkeepsie, NY

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

    Pros

    Used to be a good place to work. There was always a wide variety of jobs so you got good variety during your career. These days it is just a job with no hope of moving forward or to a different role.

    Cons

    If you are a US employee, then your job will probably go away. The morale is terrible because everyone is just waiting to get cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother.
