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

Pros

Work-life balance is very good as you can work from home or in office based on your needs. Offers lots of education resources on-line and on-site.

Cons

Constant cost-cutting actions; mentality of employees seen as liability not asset. Continues to layoff excellent employees to get to 2015 road map even though it's no longer viable in this market. The PBC rating system is used to get rid of employees not improve their performance. Once you are rated a "2", you are on the "layoff list".

Advice to Management

Get rid of the PBC rating system. It's outdated and no longer relevant. The skew system is not fair as very good employees have their ratings lowered just because it's "their turn".

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, ability to work remote

    Cons

    no raises, given the size of IBM I thought there would be opportunity for movement across brands and divisions. Many jobs are offshored

    Advice to Management

    provide more training opportunity


  2. "A series of great assignments"

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you like working with some seriously smart people.

    IBM has trouble getting out of its own way. Hopefully this is changing.
