    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Competitive salaries. Many work from home positions. Quality professionals to work with, for the most part. Many opportunities available if your manager will let you pursue them.

    Cons

    Company wide "respect for the individual" is gone. Decisions (including forced weekend work) are now driven mostly by meeting financial goals and quarterly executive measurements. Primary corporate focus now seems to be meeting an advertised 2015 earnings per share at any cost, it seems. Therefore, frequent large layoffs and common.

    Advice to Management

    Bring some of that IBM-unique respect back to your individual employees.

    Too much back stabbing , cut throat , no work -life balance

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your own mistakes. Don't put blame on your direct reports. Also , a lot of people are dissatisfied with the treatment. Encourage people and give them reason why they enjoy waking up in the morning and come to work for you.
