I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Employees generally take great pride in company. Many opportunities for career exploration (rotating to different positions is encouraged. Opportunities to work abroad. Expansive employee training opportunities. Co-workers generally willing to provide mentoring and help.

Cons

Perhaps lack of office community (although this may be unique to my experience, I enjoyed working from home when possible but there are obvious drawbacks). Workflow can be frustrating, certainly ebbs and flows

    Pros

    Some middle management still remember what IBM was like at its peak and seem to respect workers.

    Cons

    Scary atmosphere with constant layoffs of workers from North America.
    Used to think IBM was a stable employer but constant worry about layoffs (resource actions) undermines that.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees you are planning to layoff a chance to engage in activities specifically targeted at rebuilding their careers within newly emerging parts of the company. Don't hire outside talent while a single IBM employee is being laid off. Retrain, Recycle, Reuse. Loyalty is a two way street.


  2. "Not what it used to be"

    Cons

    no recognition, management that does not care about employees.

    Advice to Management

    at least pretend to care about your people. let them grow, and allow movement within the company.
