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

    Pros

    Ten years ago, I could have stated some; however, times have changed.

    Cons

    Work life balance has become work life integration.
    Training is non-existent
    Offshoring is rampant
    Benefits are cut year after year
    Raises and bonuses, if given at all, are insulting. Top rated individuals have gotten 1%-2% in the past few years, despite record profits
    Company has become an SAP shop

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training and budget it yearly. Employees cannot be expected to have 100%+ utilization and train on their "off" hours.

    If Monday is a holiday, don't demand employees work the following Saturday. You should be able to forecast better than that.

    Utilization should be calculated after vacation, holidays, and training. Employees should not be penalized for time off.

    The offshore model has failed. On site resources can do the job better and faster.
