    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a large company and if you are lucky or rub elbows with the right people you can get out of IBM Dubuque and possibly into the real IBM.

    Cons

    IBM Dubuque is a very undesirable location for more than one reason. It's easy to get in but very difficult to get out of IBM Dubuque and remain in IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to work, work, work and then go to work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Use to be a great company which supported and invested in their employees and clients. Work balance and autonomy was fantastic if you achieved.

    Cons

    Ageism is rife. Retrenching majority of “older” people for many years who are on six figures. Replacing with young cheap labour. All about the bottom line for CEO and shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of CEO - has lost focus - people are very important to the success of a company.
