    Pros

    I've worked for IBM for 13 years. When I started it was a good place to work, good benefits, good training, but that's changed over the years. I can't remember the last time I got any real training. I guess the benefits are still reasonably good compared to what other companies have.

    Cons

    If you're in Strategic Outsourcing, good luck to you, but you have to see what's been happening, as more and more people are laid off. Like I mentioned above, the training (which was one of the best things about this job) has totally dried up. So now you have below average pay to go along with no training, and no opportunities to really move up in the company either.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want to be as a company and go for it. Treat your people better.

    I worked at IBM as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teams are very well organised and take care of others

    Cons

    Contractors are easily turned over and furloughs are not handled well.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to help ease the burden of the furlough.

    Pros

    IBM offeres a above average compensation package. The benefits package is above industry average also. Just working for IBM still holds some high esteem.

    Cons

    You will generally put in some long hours at IBM and be forced to work at a "global" pace. At least for US employees, the jobs are there but either shrinking in compensation (e.g. US Global Delivery Centers in Iowa & Colorado) or being groomed for global counterparts to fulfill for the higher pay positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stick around for the roosters to come home to roost. You keep shifting jobs oversees, the management and executives will be there at some point also.
