I have been working at IBM as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

I am treated with respect and given a lot of flexibility with schedules. As a student I am very happy to be employed at this great company.

Cons

Organization of certain programs and groups might need some work when things come close to deadlines.

Advice to Management

Try to understand the work their employees do and use that information to make better deadline decisions.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great company if you have family and need the flexibility to work from home or take care of the kids. Still at the same time working. Decent health benefits as well. If you don't like to do any work but like to talk as though you are doing work, this is the company for you.

    Cons

    No 401k match. No pay raises unless you're an executive. No job growth unless you're best friends with upper management or legacy into the IBM family. The only employees that get ahead are those that throw their work over the fence and take credit for others work and accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending jobs to India and Brazil, it is clear you are blinded by the fact you get what you pay for with unqualified and low skilled workers.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Traditional values and lots of great opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    inter-group communication and collaboration is wanting. in the absence of this there is a lot of noise and inefficiency. it is a company where new ideas and good ideas go to die....

    Advice to Management

    they do find and hire the best talent...but need to curb the brain-drain. your best assets are the people - hold on to them !
