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

Pros

Great company with tremendous people and resources. Benefits and compensation packages are very strong. Extensive job options allow for upward mobility. Strong in the local community.

Cons

Large and slow at times. Many of the tools and databases are outdated, ironic for the world's premier information technology corporation. Workload expectations can be high.

    Pros

    Leading global business model focused on services

    Cons

    U.S.-based management and just hanging on to their jobs

    Advice to Management

    Innovation in the US, with government cooperation through taxes and regulations should translate into more jobs, not less.


  2. "Good place to work, if you can avoid Global Services"

    Pros

    Many great, smart people. Flexible and interesting work. Good pay.

    Cons

    Moved to Global Services after 20 years in Development. What a difference!! Global Services is a soulless organization. The first three things in their mind are 1. utilization, 2. utilization, 3. utilization. And the fourth thing is reporting utilization on time (or even better, report it early). Only place I've ever worked where their attitude is that if you have been around long enough to earn more vacation (or happen to get sick), you need to work more overtime in order to hit your utilization target (based on total hrs, not available hrs). I understand that Global Services is a labor-based organization and utilization is a key metric. But it's an obsession with management. First time I have ever felt completely devalued as a person.
