    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Remote working. Professional colleagues. Respect for the Individual, Great prospects (all now in the past).
    Current.....IBM showing on my CV.

    Cons

    Current: No respect for the individual, Cost cutting to detriment of individual. If not in London, they do not seem interested in you. I was there for 20+ years and RA'd with Stat minimum which for what was once such a fine organisation is poor treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back respect for the individual. Practice what you preach as there seems one rule for Execs and another for rest.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Meet interesting diverse people, on the phone :-) People you work with directly are all great..

    Cons

    IBM invented Bullmerde bingo. High Performance culture rewards top 10% year after year to the detriment of everyone else - who actually do the real work - instead of spending majority of the time telling everyone how wonderful they are... Company takes advantage of their employees with expectation of working extra hours that are not compensated with overtime payments.

    Advice to Management

    If you make huuuuge record profits be a bit more generous with your employees. Stop threatening all employees with cheap GR resources, all the time.
