    I worked at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Great people and technology. Learned a lot and was able to build my skills for a successful career.

    Cons

    Top heavy. Too many managers, VP, Director, BUE, CUE, FLM for each brand, Product Manager, etc.,.. and major focus on EPS, not work life balance or people.

    Avg pay, below market value.

    Advice to Management

    Bring jobs back to US and stop offshoring for profit. Focus on quality and customer satisfication.

    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They allow work from home. Helps balance work -life during normal work days!

    Cons

    Work is way too much and without any overtime pay!! When the time's bad, they make you sit at home without pay for months on furloughs!! They unlike many other companies cannot have anyone sit without work for even a moment! They do not even inform ahead of time of impending furloughs, for you to find a better opportunity..its always last minute that way!

    Advice to Management

    Its not always about working towards managing 'stock price' but there is a lot more involved in running a company!
