Rated as one of the top 100 Canadian employers until 2006. Off the list since 2007. Coincidence? I think not.

I have been working at IBM

Pros

Very competitive salary in the Toronto / Ontario region
Flexible work arrangements - flex hours, working at home
IBM still viewed highly in the industry - looks good on the resume

Cons

Layers of management and bureaucracy to wade through, wasting your time from doing your actual work
Little to no organic innovation
Rewards those who play the political game and position themselves well, rather than those who consistently output quality work
50-55 hour weeks are the norm, with 60-65 crunch weeks often enforced, for weeks and months at a time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enable and empower your employees to make decisions, take calculated risks, and innovate. Micromanaging them to the tiniest detail wastes everyone's time and doesn't utilize people's skills to the fullest.
