Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There isn't much over time needed normally, so you get to spend more time with family. During peak season, you might need to put in some extra hours, but that's all within an acceptable range.

Cons

The pay isn't too great compared to other major companies in the industry. There is no or very few bonuses these years. It's difficult to get a decent pay raise during annual salary review.

Advice to Management

Make IBM's pay package more compatible if possible.
