Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Good benefits, flexible work schedule, up to date on-line learning, pleasent work atmosphere.

Cons

Pay is below market - difficulty moving forward in career - management puts you where it is most beneficial to them and makes it difficult to approval any career moves. Layoffs tend to occur on a yearly basis. Work week is 40+ hours - if you’re hourly you tend to receive no OT but are told to balance hours - take time off

Advice to Management

Allow for career movement. Keep staff levels at a reasonable number. Provide for OT.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Barely working 30 hours a week
    Easy work
    Good work life balance
    I chill all the time
    A monkey could do your work (I guess its a good and bad thing, depending on your perspective)

    Cons

    Not enough work
    Work is meaningless
    Work is repetitive, a monkey could do it
    No room for growth
    Office politics suck
    Someone got an offer to move to a different industry and the second line manager rejected it! They don't want you to grow and do better things.

    Advice to Management

    Give us a chance to shine and balance the workload. Give us an incentive to do a good job.


  2. "Positive overalll"

    Pros

    Tremendous benefits and opportunities to get involved with a lot of different things and opportunities if you push for it.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and frustrating at times. Also, you must be aggressive and take initiative to manage your own career. Small fish in very big sea.
