Current Employee - Executive Project Manager in Raleigh, NC (US)
Current Employee - Executive Project Manager in Raleigh, NC (US)

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of Options in pursuing Career Goals
Management Flexible about vacations
Compensation seems fair in general

Cons

Questionable Lay off practices. (ie High Perfomers being let go)
Cut back onsite education funding
Large environment causes communication issues
New 401K Funding Policy (All Matching funds deposited at end of year)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should be more actively involved in managing/guiding top performers. IBM does a good job providing tools but management seems to think of it as their lowest priority to get involved.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Current Employee - Systems Service Representative in Wichita, KS (US)

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional coworkers, best benefits package I've ever seen, very good job security, large support structure - everyone's connected, IBM-ers stick together.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, pay raises are a foreign concept, and advancement opportunities look more like a career change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees you care by helping them take care of their families, and lead your workers; don't just manage them.
