    - work life balance

    Cons

    - to Big...can easily get lost.
    - Feel like each division running as separate company with "IBM" label on it.
    - too much into "IBM" mantra.
    - not so exciting :(
    - benefits are avg.
    - bonuses are way less.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say.
    Big name can attract customers but the employees. needs a change to attract fresh blood and retain. Not sure if that is a company's priority.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dubuque, IA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dubuque, IA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Healthcare, 401K, good location, its a job and a good name for your resume.
    Good education to take with you to your next job.

    Cons

    Low paid, limited if any raises, no room for growth, too much work, too few people due to constant turn over. I have seen at least 100 people on my floor leave in the past year then you have to pick up their work even though you have no time. The if you can't fit it in you get a poor rating.
    Managers are like robots, running around like crazy, always in a frenzy, no time for their people. Two or 3 years without a raise or bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the Dubuque site cannot fix these issues, its the model. It does not work. The customers don't like it, the employees don't like it. Management needs to listen if this center is to survive.
