I worked at IBM

Pros

Lots of opportunities to work on a number of different projects. I also worked with some great people.

Cons

I spoke to my manager (the one who was responsible for my career advancement) very little. It was very difficult to touch base with him to let him know what I was working on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to you employees.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Flexible word schedules and good pay. Opportunity to work with different cultures and people. Always new challenges on the horizon

    Cons

    High stress. Constant outsourcing. Some limitations as to movement within company. Otherwise a great place to be if you are willing to put in the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team building exercises. More encouragement to get workers to find problems/projects to take on in the off times of the month

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent amount of time off, opportunities to work on latest and greatest technologies, great people to work with, diverse, high profile clients, very visible projects

    Cons

    Too many hours, too much travel, no sense of stability, rarely if ever see your management, feel more like another number than a person, treated like a body than a person sometimes, given old/slow laptop as your main tool when managers get the best for their power point slides and spread sheets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when people are away from their families all the time, working long hours and performing above and beyond expectations, it might be nice to reward them for the effort....and I don't mean buying donuts for everyone.
