      Current Employee - Java Developer in Durham, NC

      I have been working at IBM for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Some managers will work to implement good agile and/or xp work flows Pay is decent (for a contractor without benefits) Not super stressful depending on your manager

      Cons

      Corporate level puts pressure on managers to stifle agile flow and make XP nearly impossible to implement Contract to hire employees who have not left or been let go have not been hired on as full time employees after years of contract work Virtually no developer communication with end users of products High level management decisions lead to months of work on products that will never be sold. These kinds of decisions...

      Advice to Management

      Ease up on lower level managers and encourage XP or at least quality agile practices Hire the long term contractors Find buyers for products in early stages before investing crazy amounts of money

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Good people, especially the younger employees. Still doing some interesting work.

      Cons

      Bureaucratic. Long time IBMers are behind the times. Company is slowly losing relevance. Your work experience can be very good if you get into the right position. You could find yourself exposed to very interesting technologies and practices that will further your career. Conversely, you could find yourself in a very limiting job. Ask questions before accepting.
