    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working from home has been the biggest benefit lately.

    Cons

    Always seem to be worried about next RA and how to stay off the list, raises few and far between, little or no bonuses, working to all hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on stock price, build a business that provides value to the customer. Put the customer and employees first, the stock price will follow. I was once told by an ex-IBMer Good Business is good for everybody. Go back to that belief and IBM can once again be a great company both to work for and to do business with.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a large company and if you are lucky or rub elbows with the right people you can get out of IBM Dubuque and possibly into the real IBM.

    Cons

    IBM Dubuque is a very undesirable location for more than one reason. It's easy to get in but very difficult to get out of IBM Dubuque and remain in IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to work, work, work and then go to work.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    Some groups are protective of sharing information within their team in order to help secure their jobs. There is much overhead when it comes to being 'IBM compliant' as an employee. Don't expect to get even the simplest things done quickly. Also hard to find good managers that back up and advance their people.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough contact with lower management to identify the impacts that certain decisions have on the business and their people. Too much is done from the '30,000 foot' level.

    Pros

    Gives a lot of flexibility. Work from home, no Fixed timings for work, you can work as per your convenience

    Cons

    Very Manager oriented company. A lot is dependent on your manager. If you stay longer, then there is not much hike. Project duration is really small for most of the projects

    Advice to Management

    Get better project which last long. A lot of projects have been going to out of IBM's hands
