    there is not mutch good about working for IBM. However, who you work with are good people and there are a lot of very good techs

    Cons

    IBM is the cheapest company you will ever work for. EG if you want a keyboard and mouse at your desk you have to buy your own. the managements highest goal is to keep their bonuses. and they attcheve this by being unethical in how they treat their employees and customers.

    Advice to Management

    start being ethical in your business practice

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

    Pros

    Was able to keep accrued vacation. IBM supports community involvement and leaders in trying to help make the world a better place.

    Cons

    No more pension benefits. IBM supported training as long as it was free or the employee paid for it. Being outsourced to IBM is like being in a little bubble that is loosely attached to the core company, but I never felt like I was ever integrated into the core company. The outsourcing contracts were reduced and cut until almost nothing was left. If a serious problem came up, experts from the core company showed up to fix and repair the relationship with the client, but then they left again leaving only the illusion that everything was under control until the client complained again.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of quality people by developing skills. To refresh vitality and innovation, provide opportunities for employee movement within the company. People are the life blood of a company that make the company what it is; they are not resources like chairs that are just bought and sold to increase profit and reduce costs when needed.
