    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume while you are looking for a job.
    Cute downtown location - shops, small restaurants, salons/spas
    Daily huddles

    Cons

    Don't expect to make any better wage than anywhere else in Dubuque or small surrounding communities
    Unclear path to moving up
    People go years with not a penny raise
    Highest turnover rate any GDF Center in North America

    Advice to Management

    Remember you are also managing real people and not just there to please your management. Focus on building trust and morale - IBM may not allow a dime for overall team building of any kind, but you make much more than 90% of the employees there - so stop being so tight and buy your team a donut and coffee - a gift certificate - your ROI would be huge!!!! Have compassion - ask those you manage how they are doing - and mean it.
