Positive Outlook

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

* Flexible working.
* Average pay.
* Great opportunities for women, minorities, disabled.
* Potential to work on significant projects.
* Good work life balance.
* The people are often great, you can almost rely on anyone in the organisation to be helpful.

Cons

* Morale rock-bottom.
* Project management often very poor. Project badly run, technically compromised through lack of planning and arbitrary dates.
* No training, except from fellow employees.
* Sometimes awful work-life balance. Can depend.
* Company PBC process for rating employees is demoralising, and gears up employees to play the game and rather than excelling at their day job.

Advice to Management

Take software engineering seriously - it is what software group should be about.

    Pros

    Big Company, looks good on resume.
    Work from home

    Cons

    The writing is on the wall. Most of US staff will be gone. It's time to look for other opportunity.
    Always fixing the errors that the India offshore team has done, and they are supposed to be the experts.

    Advice to Management

    You have great staff here , IBM should be looking to keep developing them
