I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great management and co-workers, come and go whenever for short breaks, no punch out time cards, hard work and long hours do pay off with recognition, free coffee all day, nice office with great views of Mississippi River, privacy rooms available for small meetings, nice conference rooms for team meetings, great desk set-up, intense but well-worth classes which offer free vouchers to obtain licenses upon completion.

Cons

Managers do change often but not really a con- this is a way to experience a 'fresh' outlook on team building which I suspect is why management does frequently change. If you are not one for adjustments or changes, this type of work force is not for you.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting work when it's not yanked from you and sent overseas

    Cons

    Company has sunk to the lowest of lows. Employee benefits keep getting chopped. Good people are 'managed out' of the business with trumped up reviews. Blatant age discrimination . Anyone cover fifty walking around with a target on their back. Soaring profits are pocketed by execs, doesn't trickle down to employees, instead they get chopped
    Can't get decent equipment to do your job. Customers are getting a lot of smoke and mirrors. would give the rating 0 star if possible. Wanna know what's going on internally look at the comments section on allianceibm.org.

    Pros

    You will work with very smart people

    Cons

    The compensation and incentive programs don't encourage collaboration or staying around. There is little reward for great people managers and no disincentive for poor ones. Decision making is held at the very top of the hierarchy which discourages risk taking or even straight talk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the compensation and incentive programs.
    Push decision making lower down in the organization.
    Drive more transparency. Everyone I work with is afraid to speak the truth.
