    Always wanted to work here when I was younger, the sparkle is off the diamond. The inefficiencies around the organization is mind boggling & frustrating!

    I worked at IBM for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Stayed busy. Never a dull moment. Latest computer equipment. I was promoted twice in 2 years.

    It's 24 hours a day. Working with other countries on the same project. Just not on the same time zone.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    * Many good co-workers * Variety of projects

    Cons

    * Management exploits employees, no real concern for employee or family life * Arbitrary measurement systems and bonus metrics * The best-skilled people have either left or are looking to leave

    Advice to Management

    * Return to your core value/belief system * As the job market has tightened so much recently, you will be paying the price for ceasing to value your employees * Think long-term, not quarter-to-quarter * Return to training employees (and not requiring they get training on their own time)
