Pros

Ability to take on alot of responsibility, advance across departments and roles. Become a leader in your area of specialty or specific role. Become a key participant in driving your team or department to success. Provides you with many learning opportunities.

Cons

Long hours, can be high-stress to always exceed expectations. Downsizing and outsourcing have put alot of pressure on remaining employees. At times the Management teams are so stressed, they struggle on providing leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Approach and incorporate your team early on...everyone wants to succeed, push back when necessary to refocus goals, don't take on too many assignments.

    Pros

    Lots of good people working for the company
    Lots of flexibility to work from home and to change jobs.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Many employees were overworked.
    Many U.S. employees were being laidoff and their jobs given to IBM India employees, also to Brazil and Argentina.
    In the past few years I was considered the lucky one if I received a 2% raise. Some depts were given pay cuts.
    The PBC appraisal rating system needs to be scrapped. I hated receiving a large list of PBC objectives from management that were outside of my control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A global workforce is needed in the growing global economy, however, you need to find a way to keep the U.S. employees instead of getting rid of us.
