    Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects to work on. Great collaborative environment - knowledgeable people to work with. Good for your resume. Fine if you're starting right out of school - get in, stay 2 to 3 years and then get out.

    Cons

    I started working for another corporation that was subsequently acquired by IBM.
    Following this, the pay increases stopped - not a single cost of living increase over 3 years!
    Work evaluation system is ridiculous - even if you're ranked at the top (i.e., PBC 1) you are not guaranteed a fair cost of living increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just reward your top executives. Treat all your employees fairly.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Big Company (Could be good or bad)
    -Nice people

    Cons

    -Terrible training
    -Nothing to do most of the time with exception of month-ends.
    -Have to work some weekends even when you have about 1 hour of work to do
    -Brutal pay, but HEY you aren't doing anyways

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Learn how to train people
    -Increase pay, but provide more work to individuals, many people could take the work of 2 or 3 others and have no problem (save IBM lots of money). I would gladly have twice the work for only 50% more pay.
