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

Pros

IBM allows most employees the benefit of Telecommuting and has great work/life balance allowing employees to take care of personal business when needed.

Cons

IBM has lost its concern for their employees they are just another commodity/expense used by management. Even their pay is not as good as it once was. The side benefits like parties for the children and other events for employees are no longer in existence and this has hurt the moral. In a few years the number of US employees will be at their lowest point since all the work keeps going to the country that has the lowest cost.

Advice to Management

Please go back to the days of respect for the US employee and stop the cutting of cost just to reach the 2015 blueprint. I have seen many good US employees cut over the last several years this needs to stop. Please think about the future of the company not about the current results.

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

    Pros

    It's a job, it pays the bills (almost)

    Cons

    Average at best compensation and benefits, no regard for the employees, no innovation or excitement.

    Advice to Management

    If you're not happy with the results (which you shouldn't be), you need to change the environment so that you're able to attract and retain the talent needed to win, not exist.
