    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing knowledgebase Ability to work on any of their new technologies and ability to learn new stuff if you have the willingness to do so. Onsite

    Cons

    Very badly managed. It is impossible to get out if you get into a bad project. They dont care about you or your career. Employees are like cattle. As long as they are being milked the management does not care what they are up to till the exit interview. The pay is not at all competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees like they have some value

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    It's easy to work few hours without anyone noticing, if you consider that a pro.

    Cons

    Full of mediocre people, much too much process, not much opportunity to learn versus a leaner, smaller environment. Terrible health coverage. IBM consistently makes decisions that marginalize employees and reduce benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You're much too overburdened with process and middle management. The matrix doesn't work, it just disconnects people from the end goals. Rethink the organization.
