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

    Pros

    Base compensation is good in my job type. They do an OK job of looking after the top performers. Good medical insurance, strong 401(k) matching, ESPP opportunities, good starting PTO allowance. Many employees are allowed to work from home part of the week, if not full-time. Some types of jobs are more or less "9 to 5."

    Cons

    Decreasing benefits over time (limited/no pay increases, steep increases in insurance rates with less coverage). The best benefits (pension, large vacation allowances) were cut for new employees 5+ years ago. The company has trouble retaining new employees for these reasons. We are constantly expected to handle more workload with fewer people and no incentive to take on more. Performance evaluation program is not very equitable, and only the very top performers see any real movement in salary. Those in technical job types in the US work long hours and are expected to be available to work weekends, holidays, nights, without additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    The experience of being "an IBMer" varies tremendously from job to job. Technical vitality is being driven out of the business because you are not looking after your employees. Top performers are probably happy with their incentives and compensation, but you need the "solid" employees to get the job done, too!
