    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Working from home has been the biggest benefit lately.

    Cons

    Always seem to be worried about next RA and how to stay off the list, raises few and far between, little or no bonuses, working to all hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on stock price, build a business that provides value to the customer. Put the customer and employees first, the stock price will follow. I was once told by an ex-IBMer Good Business is good for everybody. Go back to that belief and IBM can once again be a great company both to work for and to do business with.

    Pros

    This company is on the leading edge of both technology and diversity inclusion. The opportunities I have working in a company that has everything are amazing. IBM is demanding and fast pased, but still allows plenty of space and flexibility to take care of myself and family.

    Cons

    Challenging to navigate across different business units and stay in strategic areas of the business.
