    I worked at IBM full-time for 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.
