A great work/life balance

Senior IT Specialist (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I have been working at IBM

ProsWork/Life balance. A large portion of IBM works from home and flexibility is part of the culture as long as goals are met.

ConsLarge, rigid corporation. People don't leave often so opportunities for advancement come much slower than in smaller organizations.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit wasting Billions buying back stock and keep salaries pacing inflation, last year you spend 20x the money buying back stock while employees lagged inflation. Demand more from employees in exchange for keeping up with inflation. In the short term keeping salaries low works but long term your employees start to focus on side jobs to maintain thier quality of life.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
