I have been working at IBM full-time for 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

    Wonderful people, breadth of opportunity to develop your skills and build a resume
    Decent benefits
    Wonderful 401k match

    Cons

    Too many managers not really selling but reporting-up
    Pay compared to competition is really low for enterprise sales
    Lack of focus on client success
    Comp plans don't really align well with what you do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Road-kill 2015" is not about the client or the employee - too bad. ELAs are purely financial transactions and a book keeping shell game...make them about driving business and IT value for customers. Better develop a true SaaS strategy and solutions as you guys are going to lose enterprise business customers fast!

    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.
