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

Pros

IBM had a good compensation and benefits package and they wanted their employees to have a good work environment by providing ergonomic chairs, efficient work space and lighting.

Cons

Like with a lot of companies, there are managers that are not use to minorities and it shows in their interactions with them.

Advice to Management

Managers need more diversity training especially when they were raised in a community that was not diversity inclusive.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work here, you have a unique opportunity to work on top tier software and hardware products. A large company like IBM can apply its weight to go in directions that other companies cannot. It is certainly a unique company and an interesting experience.

    Cons

    Working conditions are somewhat grey and dull. The email client everyone has to use (Lotus Notes) is an appalling piece of software that quite frankly is beyond contempt. Other internal tools (the intranet, expense claims, etc) are slightly better but still way below expectations. The bureaucracy generally is a pain. You must follow the bureaucracy and be a good cog in the machine but if it fails you then that is your problem, not IBMs. Very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix or discontinue Lotus Notes.
