    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job, but little to no satisfaction involved

    Cons

    IBM bought my previous employer's company, during the following 4 years all took at least a 12% pay cut, or more. I ended up doing the same job that I did previously, my email load doubled to 100+ a day, Most of my time was spent navigating IBM bureaucracy, I just couldn't get things done without numerous conference calls and emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the bureaucracy, measure the right things.

    Fine if you survive the offshoring; if you are a US employee, don't expect to

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

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Best for new hires fresh out of college these days; or workers in cheap foreign countries

    Cons

    No loyalty to anything but their stock price through at least 2015
    10+ years of dedication as a top performer netted little if any raises in last 7 years
    Prepare for more cutbacks and offshoring
    Friends who were 2 years short of retirement laid off and denied pension
    Survivors left wondering when the axe will hit them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top execs, your shameful treatment of loyal employees, offshoring their jobs to anywhere cheaper, all in the name of propping up the stock price is going to bite you. Customer satisfaction is plummeting as foreign workers quickly jump ship to the next best paying thing.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
