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

    Pros

    Great people, exciting working with people from so many other countries ....

    Cons

    Work-Life-Balance is a Joke! Salary is not-not-not competitive and 50+ hours/week is an expected norm. Oh, and if you can work from home, expect your job to be outsourced ---

    The last 10 years have been very disappointing and the work not satisfying.

    Pros

    IBM experience would help looking for a job with another company.

    Cons

    IBM fails to make appropriate investments in assets at the risk of exposing customers to sub-standard facilities and/or risk for the services provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many in management have financial backgrounds only, without technical expertise in the area in which they work. Often required investments are not made. But when the problem gets to a much higher level, you are asked how does this happen. Then at the annual evaluation you are told you did not contribute enough, hence a reduced rating. By forcing lower evaluations, IBM does not feel you merit a raise. The work expectations for a single individual often exceed what one person can possibly do, often requiring people to work 60 hour work weeks.
