    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There was a lot of opportunity for learning new technologies in my group plus the added resources provided by IBM.

    Cons

    IBM bought our small startup and then dismembered it. The continual layoffs over 10 years was a moral killer.

    Advice to Management

    Quit moving jobs offshore. I supposed that helped moral of offshore employees but not employees located in US.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits - company 401K match and vacation time. Not much else, other than breadth of scope and therefore opportunities to try other areas

    Cons

    Constant layoffs so you aren't sure if you will be hit by the next round. Not much funding for skill development.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of concurrent hiring and layoffs, why not redirect the cost associated with layoffs into retraining for the affected employees to get them into the growth areas.
