I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

IBM USED to be a wonderful company to work for, but that was many, many years ago

Cons

Employees are increasingly treated like they are dirt. Constant chronic cuts and stack ranking have made IBM a cut throat, miserable environment to work in. I am so tired of seeing my fellow workers get canned - and what a coincidence - they are all in their 50's when it happens. For those of us left, we work insane hours because we are doing the job that 3 or 4 people used to do and this only gets worse with every year. Nothing is done to quality anymore. Customers are no longer a priority either - not sure what is a priority with this company. If you are looking for a job, look elsewhere - you will fare much better at another company, especially if you are just starting your career.

Advice to Management

You are running a once great company into the ground.

    Pros

    Pros: Great support system and encouraging environment as teams are built to help one another and most everyone was friendly enough to offer a hand.

    Cons

    Cons: Because the company is so large, movement seems limited and based more on networking than the actual work done. Some branches within take themselves very seriously in a way that makes for an unnecessarily stressful environment

    Advice to Management

    Do not stress without cause.
