I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

great people, great technologies. This was a great place to work. Allowed for growth in professional arena. First manager was amazing. He understood the work load and he worked for us.

Cons

hours are not best, sometimes the expectations of the road warrior is such that it puts us in danger. personal manager was not versed in what the team actually did. This appeared to be a thing of put them in place to fail but at our expense.

Advice to Management

learn the position you manage. one manager knew what the field team dealt with but new manager did not take time to find out what and why things were done in the way they were.

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

    Pros

    Working with very smart people. Very good benefits. Most jobs offer flexibility. Variety of things you can do throughout your career. Diversity. Ethical place to work.

    Cons

    Extreme expense controls limit salary increases and other compensation. Starting salaries are not competitive. Very little opportunity for promotion. Long work hours. It often can be very stressful. Constantly expected to do more with less. Relentless focus on moving jobs to growth markets.

    Advice to Management

    The success of the company is going to greatly rely on the people who work there. That aspect seems to be ignored or relegated to the bottom of the priorities. Need to invest on the employees in the form of salary increases, retention and promotion.
