Professional and well organized organization. Challenge in keeping employees engaged in meaningful work. Most employees good to work with. Congenial atmosphere

Need to communicate more effectively with employees on changes underway. More productive than reading about them in the local news.

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Good opportunities, new projects keep you busy and sharp.

    Cons

    Lack of work life balance. Low pay when compared to the market. Too much emphasis on outsourcing jobs to growth markets. Lack of employee morale these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are starting to see brain and talent drain. I got 3x my salary outside of IBM at an other fortune 500 while IBM could only increase my bands without salary increases.
