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

Pros

Good salary
Decent work life balance
Competative benefits

Cons

Continued workforce reductions
Too much of the bonus money goes to top management
Lack of rewards for the regular employees

Advice to Management

Stop looking just short term to the next quarterly dividend. Invest in research & development and your people. Short term decisions are undercutting company stablity.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fellow workers really care about what they are doing and go out of their way to help each other. Flexible work schedule is nice.

    Cons

    Management has lost touch with what it means to be an employee. It seems like the only focus is on the "bottom-line".

    Advice to Management

    Start treating employees like they are your most valuable asset.

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

    Pros

    Salary is good and the people are (mostly) great.

    Cons

    The churn and the lack of respect for the employee is becoming overwhelming. Not sure which direction they are going, but regardless of your skills and the need other departments have for it, once your tagged to be resources, you cannot transfer!

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your livelihood. The moral continues to drop and unless someone stops the 6 month layoffs, leaving everyone behind to pick up the slack, the layoffs will be a part of an IBMers yearly expectation. Why put in the extra effort if regardless of your ranking, you get tagged!
