Everything else -- management, scummy practices in dealing with consultants, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating people like crap.

    Get the best salary you can walking in the door because raises are few and far between.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    - Work at home
    - Management rarely stands in the way of job changes

    Cons

    - Pay, raises, promotions, etc.
    - Health care costs increase greater than raises
    - Only one goal. Increase EPS for investors
    - Little training
    - Little management support for getting job done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop opening each quarter with a picture of the EPS growth. Stop telling us how much money IBM is making while giving none of it to the employee. Only company I've ever worked for where after 5 years of record profits I bring home less money.

    Pros

    it pays a decent amount and it's a well known company all over the world so you will definitely land another job if you're laid off.

    Cons

    sometimes the people over there can be kind of cranky and not willing to work with you which is really not a great environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you guys have to do a better job. seriiously, you need to change your focus and treat your employees better like seriously.

    No opinion of CEO
