    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Good pay, remote work, challenging

    Cons

    The entire company is fading, led by terrible leadership. Slashing jobs in the US is the approach to becoming profitable, but IBM forgot their roots and sold out to offshoring.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what your greatest assets are, and it's the loyal people who worked with you even through slashing jobs around them.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    IBM pays a good base salary. Medical coverage especially for prescriptions is excellent.

    Cons

    No long term structure Sales plans are changed every half. What you sell changes, who you sell to changes. They have a calculation that they use to determine if you are succeeding in sales or not. What it doesn't take into account is that there is a 12-18 month sales cycle. When your territory and clients change every 6 months... and it takes two months to get the details to you... you are expected to achieve in 4 mo...

    Advice to Management

    Leave things alone. Stop messing with the structure. Let your sales reps actually take care of your clients. Stop treating people like they are indispensable as you get the numbers where you can without calling it a RIF and instead telling the sales teams they just aren't talented.

    Pros

    I work with some of the best people around. I feel challenged and encouraged on a regular basis.

    The company is huge. This means you can have several divisions essentially doing the same thing without knowing about each other.

    Management in my division is transparent and hard working. I'm really happy to be working for you.

    Pros

    Flexibility, resources, people before they all started quitting. Independent work. Some benefits are great! Employee portals if you can navigate.

    Cons

    Constant Management change. Guided employee development-you will not get any. red tape everywhere, good luck getting anything accomplished. Unhappy clients.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what works and improve on that, quit changing/releasing software without proper planning and testing. Customers are leaving!

    Overall a very good experience. Great co-workers and very smart people overall with over 100 years of

    Cons

    Incentives typically conflict with other groups which causes mixed messages to customers. A very process heavy organization. Slow to make strategic change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't wait til the market tells you to move into a new direction because if it does you will be too late to change. Embrace creative destruction and simplify your goals and align them directly to everyone's incentives.
