Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Dedicated Learning portal
- Lots of information over intranet
- Flexible work environment (every employee can work from home or come at different hours, laptops issued with some efforts)

Cons

- regionalism (preference for people from one location)
- short term project based focus (no emphasis on employee development, works like sweatshop)
- many many layers and even more departments. easy to get lost.

Advice to Management

In a project driven organization, employees are the best resources and these are the ones that suffer most at IBM. Focus on employee grooming will retain people.

  1. "IBM has no respect for U.S. employees"

    Current Employee - Service Delivery Manager
    Current Employee - Service Delivery Manager
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent pay and decent benefits

    Cons

    This is a company that is only concerned about executive bonuses at the expense of U.S. employees. Service lines are being off-shored in droves to Argentina, Brazil, India Vietnam and other countries. If you are over 50 years old IBM will "resource action" (fire) you to save a buck. They have NO RESPECT for the IBM employee. It's all about the money they save with cheap professional labor.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO. Palmisano is clueless and full of greed.
