      I worked at IBM for more than a year

      Pros

      IBM has a very nice internal IT support line. If something goes wrong with your laptop, you can call someone in a foreign country and they will probably be able to figure out what's wrong with your system.

      Cons

      Working for IBM may be OK for regular full-time employees, but on a contract basis it was a nightmare. I've worked several contract jobs but IBM was hands-down the absolute worst because it was a three-tiered arrangement. I was contracted by an agency based in India, which provided employees to IBM, and IBM then provided a team of contractors to the end client company. This arrangement meant that I had two management...

      Advice to Management

      If you want to be in the business of providing contract services then you need to pay attention to the needs of your clients. The on-site IBM management seemed to think they knew what was best for their customers. The IBM managers just got in the way.

      I worked at IBM for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Professional colleagues, solid benefits, resume prestige, Indian food, high technology standards, cool logo, wages in line with national averages, they handle the client relationship management at the portfolio level

      Cons

      It's really not that bad to work for IBM. They do take a big chunk out of the contractor contracts; much higher than the industry standard 20%, sometimes more than 50%. Other cons: Indian food, wages in line with national averages, they handle the client relationship management at the portfolio level.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on keepin' on, dudes. And hire more women.

      Fine if you survive the offshoring; if you are a US employee, don't expect to

      I worked at IBM full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good benefits Best for new hires fresh out of college these days; or workers in cheap foreign countries

      Cons

      No loyalty to anything but their stock price through at least 2015 10+ years of dedication as a top performer netted little if any raises in last 7 years Prepare for more cutbacks and offshoring Friends who were 2 years short of retirement laid off and denied pension Survivors left wondering when the axe will hit them

      Advice to Management

      Top execs, your shameful treatment of loyal employees, offshoring their jobs to anywhere cheaper, all in the name of propping up the stock price is going to bite you. Customer satisfaction is plummeting as foreign workers quickly jump ship to the next best paying thing.

      I have been working at IBM

      Pros

      A wealth of opportunity to learn new technologies. Able to telecommute, good benefits

      Cons

      Not a company to join if you are looking for a long term career in the US.

      Advice to Management

      American employees are more hard working, loyal, intelligent than most of the countries that you are outsourcing our jobs to.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Lots of hi-tech research and implementation, as well as top-notch methods and strategies all over the company

      Cons

      With the intuit of creating new methodologies to sell to other companies, sometimes a few great methodologies, like Agile, are a little compromised in order to adapt to their own new project, tending to create a few confusion on which employees should embrace Agile as it is, or the "own Agile method"

      Advice to Management

      It's always great to be innovative and disruptive, but at some moments and some specific areas, it's a good idea to keep the "old and safe ones" in order to guarantee the greatest results
