I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Values and basic beliefs, large enterprise client base, breadth of offerings, excellent customer support, quality of its people, consistent financial results, industry competitive benefits plan.

Cons

Slow to move at times, multiple layers of management, some offerings are not easy to use and deploy and have a long time to value in mid-sized and small companies.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, competitive pay, diverse work force.

    Cons

    Too much focus on share holders and not enough on employees

    Advice to Management

    Years were spent to hire and train the best people, but you are losing them through repeated resource actions and attrition. Work force in the US is aging -- very little hiring. Invest in your employees -- if you lose them, you'll never have so much talent again.

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

    Pros

    *Work from home
    *Management is hands off
    *Can't say much more for the positives, honestly was a stretch to put the above down.

    Cons

    *Management is dishonest
    *No Career Growth
    *Draconian treatment of employees
    *No respect for the individual, or work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Forget about the EPS target (also known as "Roadkill 2015"), and return to investing in our employees and customers. Short term personal gain for the executives should not be the primary concern for IBM... in fact it will be the death of an American Icon if not corrected very quickly.
