Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Growth opportunity
Work flexibility (location,hours) and freedom
Lower-to-mid management tends to be pretty good

Cons

Forced-curve ratings hinder development teams in a constant effort to shift engineering jobs overseas. Salary growth low to non-existent. Every new year comes with its new set of decrees worsening your working conditions. So while objectively there are some really good jobs to be had - the FEELING is that your company hates you.

Advice to Management

Think how to make your employees FEEL good about the company before all that's good about IBM disappears.

    Pros

    IBM brand name is well recognised in the industry. There are lots of diverse and exciting opportunities.
    I was able to move across the country with IBM. Great group of coworkers.

    Cons

    Utilization targets for GBS throw work-life balance in a tizzy. IBM's raises and bonuses are ludicrous. Finding opportunities within IBM is dependent on strength of your network.
