Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Big company with a great customer base and world wide name recognition. i.e. Good for the resume.

Cons

Very little ability to adapt new and needed practices associated with acquisitions. Very high pressure on sales side and definitely a "good ole boys club" component. Internal competition between various groups and political jockeying means that the customer gets whats best for the biggest player at IBM, not whats best for the customer.

Advice to Management

Way too much to list here. The entire company needs to be overhauled from the inside out... much like our government.

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

    Pros

    Working as a Financial analyst at the Rochester COE has it perks. First the work life balance is great, you work 40 or even 38 hours some weeks, as long as you get your work done. You also have the option to work from home and the atmosphere is very laid back and relaxed and this is reflected in the dress code. Plus the average age for FA's is 24/25 so it is a youthful bunch.

    Cons

    Salary is pathetic, 40k flat with no room for negotiotion. You get a 2k increase when converted to a reg. Also limited upward mobility, not he greatest place to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and provide real growth opportunities.
