I worked at IBM full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Not many, access to a lot of material but no real director on how to use it.

Cons

Mis-management, inability to grow talent and grossly out of touch with their client base. IBM will continue to lose public sector contracts over the next decade.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hands on management there is none

No opinion of CEO

  1.  

    Great people, great experience, very bad work environment, 60 to 70 hours is norm, zero concern for the human.

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain true global experience and to meet IT people from many other companies who have been outsourced by IBM. Opportunity to work with many other large companies and gain the insight of how they run.

    Cons

    "Resource Actions"/layoffs all the time, never know when your number is up, exempt employees are often expected to work 60 to 80 hours a week and often form months at a time. Often the job requires travel, still need to do all the work with what hours remain in the week. Compensation is not that of the competition unless you are a new hire and negotiate real well. This year the lady running IBM canceled variable pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the only thing you pay attention are the finances then that is the only thing you are managing, the business and the people are suffering.
