    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Name recognition; still clings to some of the core values

    Cons

    Too focused on short-term results. Constant cost-cutting by reducing headcount, but workload remains the same. So you're always required to "do more with less." Most technical jobs being sent overseas.

    Advice to Management

    After sending the technical jobs to the BRIC countries you'll find that while you DID reduce costs, you also reduced the experience and, in many cases, professionalism of your workforce. Whatever happened to "Our people are our most important resource"? This will come back to bite you.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are the only thing that this company provides.

    Cons

    Lack of management skills, care for workers, and innovative products. Has become nothing but a sweat shop for avarice corporate leaders.
