Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Dubuque, IA (US)

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great management and co-workers, come and go whenever for short breaks, no punch out time cards, hard work and long hours do pay off with recognition, free coffee all day, nice office with great views of Mississippi River, privacy rooms available for small meetings, nice conference rooms for team meetings, great desk set-up, intense but well-worth classes which offer free vouchers to obtain licenses upon completion.

Cons

Managers do change often but not really a con- this is a way to experience a 'fresh' outlook on team building which I suspect is why management does frequently change. If you are not one for adjustments or changes, this type of work force is not for you.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Herndon, VA (US)

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Global brand name recognition in Technology.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, heavily bureucratic company structure, too many management layers, not quite a meritocracy. Performance assessments are geared towards appearing to find "fault" rather than growth opportunities. Legend has it that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
