Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of Options in pursuing Career Goals
Management Flexible about vacations
Compensation seems fair in general

Cons

Questionable Lay off practices. (ie High Perfomers being let go)
Cut back onsite education funding
Large environment causes communication issues
New 401K Funding Policy (All Matching funds deposited at end of year)

Advice to Management

Management should be more actively involved in managing/guiding top performers. IBM does a good job providing tools but management seems to think of it as their lowest priority to get involved.

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

    Pros

    Strong company strategy and a real chance to succeed in the market. Lots of tools and IP available. Flexible benefits. Good company culture. Global reach.

    Cons

    Complex processes. Company is very good in squeezing the most out of its employees making work-life integration (I guess they gave up on the term "balance") a challenge. You need a strong sponsor to move up as the complex matrix structure provides potentially too many stakeholders to roles. Negotiate for the highest salary possible when you come in as good incremental increases and promotions will be difficult to come by. Many jobs being shipped overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Need more parity between outside hires who get the incumbent employees. Better career development and compensation needed.
