Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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.
