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

Pros

Loved working from home. Managers were excellent in terms of dealing with direct reports. Good work-life balance.

Cons

No corporate loyalty towards employees any more. Only focus of HQ is to improve EPS, any way at any cost. In the long-run, this will kill an American icon.

Advice to Management

Quit sending American jobs to Brazil and India.

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

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, career development, management, team spirit, family values oriented, etc.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any. I know a lot has changed since I was laif off in 2005, but I still believe IBM is one of the greatest, & one of the most admired U.S. companies of all-time.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep your employees happy & they'll aways work hard for you, which in turn makes you look good to your bosses.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -International assignments for college hires
    -Cross continent collaboration on a daily basis
    -Leadership opportunities for college hires
    -Flexible working hours and locations

    Cons

    -IBM politics often times gets in the way of progress and innovation.
    -Recent changes in benefits (401K, Thanks Award, etc)
    -Expect late night and early morning meetings if working with international counter parts

    Advice to Management

    -Stop cutting benefits and allocate some real budgets for recruiting and retention - we as a company are losing talents due the recent actions called by the upper management.
