    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having IBM on your resume looks nice, medical benefits are good, really is trial by fire so you really have to learn quickly.

    Cons

    Forget everything they've ever said in onboarding or while talking to executives - IBM's primary goal is their bottom line and to them people are disposable. They do a poor job of selling and writing contracts and the workers bees have to deal with the repercussions of undersold contracts and not enough projects in the pipeline for when we hit the bench. Compensation is terrible, you will not make the market value for your skillset unless you come in at that rate and the possibility of ever achieving that rate is slim to none otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    EXTREMELY POOR MANAGEMENT - since IBM is so quick to lay off, how about laying off all of these poor managers and recruiting new managers who actually add value. Mid Level Managers are dismissive, rude, condescending and add absolutely NO value (resource staffing personnel included). Good luck getting an answer or assistance with anything unless you have their boss' boss copied on the email. Good luck on getting funding for training/education expenses. Sure, they tell you they provide assistance but really they don't because there is never any available funding for it.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours with some work from home opportunities. Will learn a lot and make many connections.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive in outsourcing area. Extensive overtime required and many jobs move to other countries. Always concerned with next lay off.

    Advice to Management

    Pay adjustments to bring to market value would help keep valuable employees with top ratings.
