Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Worked with very smart people, got to do a lot of different things. If you keep moving around you can do almost anything.

Cons

They have constant layoffs. The internal workplace productivity products are not what is out on the market. Constantly cutting cost to the detriment of the employees

Advice to Management

In the past if you did a good job you were employed, now you treat your employees like tools

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Elevators, good chairs, good lighting, nice view from upper floors, nice lobby, a little coffee nook to ponder ones escape. It is in the nice little city of Dubuque. IM

    Cons

    More dysfunctional than most large companies I have worked at.
    Leadership provided by "professional managers" with no IT sense.
    If you enjoy changing & tracking your passwords youll like it here, not 5 or 6, like 40 constantly expiring.
    The 10 accounts you ll be supporting all have different configurations, login procedures, rules
    India coworkers are 12 hours away, many that are difficult to understand.
    Prepare to give up all of your personal digits to anonymous requests from the many clients across the globe to secure your personal access to their data systems.
    Remember you will be fired if you share a id or password, understandable.
    High turnover, depressing to see hope fade in the newbies.

    Advice to Management

    Grab as much money as you can, while you can. Oh.. your already doing that?
    Get rid of useless 1st line managers and listen to you team leads.
