Pros

IBM is a good place to work. There is good deal of respect for employees except when it comes to the resource actions. In many parts of the company you get the opportunity to change jobs every 2-3 years and that helped maintain my interest and keep me challenged. Also, if you get a manager that you don't like very well you can be pretty sure that you or they will move before too long.

Cons

The lack of promotions. You need to want to work a lot of hours - this isn't a 9-5 place.

Advice to Management

You might have considered "taking the higher road" and not had such huge resource actions and moving so many jobs overseas at a time when the US economy was tanking... You should also review your downsizing policies. In the actions of 2009, the policies allowed a number of top performers go.

    Pros

    None...Used to be a great company to work for but not any longer.

    Cons

    Pay raises of 1% or 2% every few years drives newer employees away. Unfortunately the respect for the individual that was IBM's creed has vanished. Used to be the Flagship company to work for however now just another large multinational that most new hires stay on for 5 years and then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Salary plan is so skewed to the executive level that the execs have lost touch with the folks that really keep the business running..

    Pros

    Great telecommute, excellent global opportunities. High tech market. IBM recognized as a world leader and future focused company offering exciting career opportunity if you are willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Not a great channel friendly company. IBM spends too much time competing against our channel. IBM recognized as a world leader and future focused company offering exciting career opportunity if you are willing to put in the time.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time and energy investing in
    business partners. Spend marketing dollars on product ad ertising instead of relying on partners to build a market
