    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.

    This opinion is about Network Solutions, which is an IBM acquired company.. A pure DESI & goal-less company

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Nature of Business is Good; But the people are too lazy to take interest in the Company's growth.. Especially Senior Management are kind of Escapists, taking the Business Rudder-less.. (Plz take this opinion as for NETWORK-SOLUTIONS.. But, NOT for IBM

    Cons

    NOCi Product - too stupid product to buy; It is not even updated in their own web-site; Also, Application Development Team just enjoys while screaming & shouting.. No calmness & seriousness. Ironically, Product Managers themselves talk NEGATIVE about their own Product; Make mockery of it.. And so is Engineering Manager / Engagement Manager - Just passing time.. What a rubbish company to work with !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Country Manager some one works from their Base HQs need to be appointed; NOT from Remote Management.. Also, screws of the Development & Sales Teams need to be tightened.. They are in a pathetic shape as of now. NO ONE (repeat) NO ONE takes pride in the Organization.. What an Irony :)
