Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Big Company (Could be good or bad)
-Nice people

Cons

-Terrible training
-Nothing to do most of the time with exception of month-ends.
-Have to work some weekends even when you have about 1 hour of work to do
-Brutal pay, but HEY you aren't doing **** anyways

Advice to Management

-Learn how to train people
-Increase pay, but provide more work to individuals, many people could take the work of 2 or 3 others and have no problem (save IBM lots of money). I would gladly have twice the work for only 50% more pay.
