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

Pros

Worked on some great projects.
Some nice people
work from home

Cons

Most US jobs going overseas.
Your HR manager has no leverage. Most of the time you don't even meet your manager face to face and most of the time they have no clue in what you are doing.
Toxic Environment

Advice to Management

From my experience, management could care less about employees. They care about making numbers and bonus.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. I've never had an issue with regards to having to plan something around family events or emergencies. My 1st line managers have always been good at their jobs, managing people.

    Cons

    Everyone and their mother is a manager. There are too many people in the upper levels of management who have their MBAs. All of them are trying to build their own little castles and they don't care who they have to step on in order to do it.

    The company lacks direction and suffers from a lack of technical professionals. Likely due to the low wages and terrible benefits. They are not competitive in the job market and make no efforts to retain their worker base.

    Advice to Management

    Try caring more about your employees than your bonus's.


  2. "Lack of investment in what they have"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Work/life balance has been decent for a traveling consultant
    Typically good consultants to work with

    Cons

    Company does very little to retain it's employees (e.g., bonuses, salary increases, awards) and focuses on bringing in new talent or people that have left

    Professional development is disappointing - no reimbursement for professional organization memberships/conferences, internal/external training has pretty much all but disappeared

    Advice to Management

    Focus on and reward the talent you have and supplement it with external hires
