Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

I've worked with some of the most intelligent and dedicated individuals in the IT industry. Unfortunately, many have moved on to better companies.

Cons

Employees are treated as commodities. No respect for the individual. Constant threat of layoffs. Salary targets are below industry average. Extremely low employee morale.

Advice to Management

Get your act together before you're left with a board of directors and no employees. Unless that is your goal.
