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

    Pros

    Pay, flexible work schedule, access to brilliant minds! Had the privilege of working with some great individuals.

    Cons

    Pitting team against team, performance measurement tools did not give managers enough leeway.... Line managers really had very little say in employee reviews and compensation - ..Teamwork was promoted, however not supported . Cost reduction trumped quality every time! Focus was way too much on short term rather than long term goals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing 'the game' and take a stand and make what was a terrific company terrific again! Hire North American work force rather than off shoring.


  2. "Decent company to work for"

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rewarding technical challenges, very good benefits, telecommuting encouraged

    Cons

    If you don't make your numbers, you're out. They're constantly looking to cut US staff, so a drop in performance can be fatal. Relentless metrics and measurements. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    The quality of work from the India branch does not compare to historic IBM standards. The high turnover is draining IBM's organizational memory.
