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

    Pros

    Company Values are good and suitable for work life balance. Open culture for all.

    Cons

    Compensation is average and much below the mid tire companies. Present leadership at this time of 2014 3Q has no specific focus and sales are going down everyday. As a result company doesn't have much software development work. Its more of sustaining the already released product. And it also didn't move towards the newer technologies, at least taking long time. Almost NO perks, Personal growth is about to be stagnant as there is not much of challenging work or development work. Promotions takes it own time like any other mammoth org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have focus and prepare to share the roadmap to the engineers. Also you can always reduce cost and improve EPS WITHOUT firing your engineers. Bring back old timer as your CEO like Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. for your turnaround again.

    Doesn't Recommend
