    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM is very flexible and understanding of work hours, if I need to take off a little early for an appointment it's no problem. They also allow us to work from home and it's very low stress most of the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to see what is coming over the horizon so we lack foresight in many cases making it difficult to plan for things.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for IBM Cloud for over a year and a half and I have really enjoyed every day. We work mostly infrastructure and hardware to expand services in an IaaS environment.

    Cons

    There seems to be a fair amount of turn-over for new hires. Most that newly join the company seems to not even know that much about working on home computers. It leads to more advanced techs having to teach about even simple components and proper handling of these components. In the long run, it turns into techs working to advance their career having to spend less time taking the certifications to advance and more time teaching basics over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Mangement does a lot right, just wish there was a way to adequately find people that wish to stay with the company for more than a few months.

  3. "Great Company"

    Pros

    Great company to work for within the IoT space.. Very very smart people to work with. Just do not fall behind because you will get lost

    Cons

    Way too big of a company. Easy to get left behind.

    Advice to Management

    None, keep it up

    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Snacks and soft drinks. Nice facility. Lots and lots of learning available online. Lots of self service options with technology. Websites that shouldn’t be blocked (google searches to research) not blocked.

    Cons

    Negotiated rates for doc instead of copays. Egos are high and people are in power only because people above them left after merger. Halo effect runs high. Need to migrate from lotus notes.. and only use one instant messaging option.

    Advice to Management

    Really evaluate managers on what their employees say about them. Not the facade they present to execs.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries were average for position.

    Cons

    Layoffs can come at anytime. Subject to whims of ever revolving executives and department budgets for that period. Bonuses were far below average.

    Advice to Management

    Revere your more experienced resources. Not many young new hires will put up with 60-70 hour weeks and working through vacations like your more experienced workers.

    Pros

    Great place and good company to work for.
    Flexibility to work from home (varies from client to client).
    No micromanagement but expected to take full ownership/responsibility.

    Work longer hours and weekend support sometimes.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for IBM.

    Cons

    Worst company I have EVER worked for. They over paid me almost $5k and when I called to verify the money I was told it was mine. Then shortly after I deposited the money they told me it was an overpayment and I had to pay it ALL back. Once I finally paid it back (which took 4 months) I was laid off. THEN after my lay off I received a letter stating I was overpaid 2 days of vacation (which was actually taken out of my last check from them already) and now they have sent that almost $400 to collections.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, flexible, tons of education. Some pockets of business are great. Hard to find those and they are not hiring.

    Cons

    No career path, especially in the Digital org. Silo'd business groups. Prefer to make a fictitious ACV$ than do what is right for clients.

    Pros

    Ability to change clients and to promote within IBM

    Cons

    Layoffs. A dip in the business for one client shouldn't mean layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    With record profits, you can afford some loyalty.
