    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Best reasons to work for IBM? Wow, that's tough! When I started with IBM 9 years ago there were many good reasons to work for IBM. It was a company with a great history of respect for its employees and their customers. It was a company that paid well, treated people fairly and honestly, was respected by the industry, it's customers and it's employees. It offered people fair pay, good benefits, rewarding work... environment. In reality by 2014 there is no good reason to work for IBM

    Cons

    Today employment at IBM has nothing but negatives. The bureaucracy is far worse than ever. In order to accomplish anything at all, one must fill out an endless stream of web forms, request databases, spreadsheets, management approvals, etc. A simple change can take weeks to get all the "ducks" aligned. The chance for career advancement is almost nonexistent. The internal jobs website has been revamped to make it... almost unusable. When applying for a job, the hiring manager doesn't even give the applicant the courtesy of a response. This has happened to me on many occasions. Most of the folks that I've talked to have said the same thing. Apparently it's now considered an acceptable practice to not even acknowledge receipt of an application. I guess that should be expected given the fact that employees are now referred to as "resources" and not people. If I had a dime for every time I heard a manager refer to employees as "resources" I could retire today.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the history of the company. This company was built on "Respect for the Individual". Senior management needs to stop focusing on lining their own pockets and focus on returning the company to the values that it was founded on. Stop using trickery, fraud and deceit as tools to advance the bottom line. Also remember that company success and growth are not achieved on cost reduction and cuts alone. Return the... company to greatness that it once was.
