Pros

Provide opportunities to acquire skills in different areas through education, on the job training. Great work environment - team work, flexible (promote work from home).
Have many organization with different mission and products provide the opportunity to work with different product sets, and different team culture.

Cons

Since IBM has many divisions with different mission and product sets, the employee will not have an overall understanding of the different organization products and strategy.

Advice to Management

Management team especially 1st line didn't have much of the decision making for the compensation for their employees. Need to give the 1st line management team more lead way to compensate their employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Access to interesting technology which you won't find at smaller companies.
    Benefits while decreasing, still seem pretty good in comparison.

    Cons

    Outsourcing to Global Resources has destroyed morale.
    Lack of training and education.
    Constant threat of layoffs.
    Cost savings measures are ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that at one time, IBM valued their employees as their best asset. If you have employees willing to deliver, IBM will succeed. Your current path is not heading in that direction.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    IBM has taken good care of me over the years...my salary is competitive, and particularly early in my career the benefits were best-of-breed.

    Cons

    There is too much focus on the bottom-line (i.e. shareholder return). As a result, continued cost-cutting in major markets such as the US has left those remaining workers overworked and under-appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that continued off-shoring will lead to negative consequences (reduced customer sat, lower employee morale, negative media and regulatory attention).
