    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good work environment, good educational opportunities and rewarding. I would say it is the best job I have had thus far and was sorry to leave.

    Cons

    Every changing goal, conditional modifiers for some application and only limited authority to do the job. Getting full time employment will be difficult due to that many support positons are being moved overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Always consider the quality of your employees or the number of employees. I believe that moving job off-shore while saving money costs the company in the long run.

    Work family life balance. Good medical benefits

    You can get layed-off at any time. No job security.

    Keep those employed with the company until they reach retirement. Give them the option to leave or stay.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It's a paycheck until something else pops up. Nothing more.

    Cons

    There is no stability at all. Jobs are slowly sent to India or one of the regional centers created in the States. Layoffs are all too common. There is zero training provided and management has no idea what their poeple do because everybody is remote.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to value their employees more. Sr Management is a lost cause. Totally clueless. SDM's that think they know what they are doing but have no idea how to manage an account.

    Cons

    The company has changed over the years. It used to reward its employees with trips, motivational awards, company outings etc. This has all but stopped completely. Quotas were challenging but attainable, allowing one to earn a really good income. That has all but stopped and the environment as of late has been driving employees to meet unrealistic quotas. Lots of pressure on employees. Junior employees are micro-managed...

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

    Pros

    Steady work; good teamwork, a paycheck.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, and no pay for shift differential, working 12 hours shifts. No training.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your people, learn what it is they actually do before you roll out procedure changes which are destined to fail.
