Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Generally Good benefits. Coworkers are outstanding to work with.

Cons

Benefits are consistently declining for the past 15 years. No real improvement in benefits for past 15 years except for soft benefits that add little value for the employee. Company has progressed from very caring company to an employee beat down environment. Respect for the individual has disappeared. Aggressive layoffs yearly, unannounced to the public dismissing older employees. Morale low.

Advice to Management

Wake up to the way you are treating employees.
