    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary
    EXCELLENT Benefits
    Vast knowledge base & learning resources
    Great place to build your skill base
    Global teams

    Cons

    VERY High Stress
    Executive Management that is only interested in their next position
    Managers that often have little actual management experience
    Limited respect for the individual employee
    Very high attrition through layoffs within the US workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying off subject matter experts & US workforce. You are losing many years worth of intellectual capital, dedication, loyalty and respect every time IBM lets someone with 20+ years of experience go. Replacing the US employee with a foreign workforce helps lower man hour costs, but is costing IBM productivity and dedication due to the lower skilled, less experienced asian, mexican, european, chinese, and slavic workers they are replacing long time US workers with. Stop focusing on the stock price and profit margin and focus on revitalizing workforce in America!
