    IBM keeps cutting costs at the employee's expense, reducing or eliminating reimbursement for legitimate business expenses. Employee recognition has been declining year to year for quite a while.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Work life balance, as long as you get the work done. There are helpful people around with expertise (if you can find it). Great learning opportunity for early hire. Many departments and roles to explore. Services unit for implementation provides superb experience to customer . Political.

    Cons

    The process is too much. Taking 2-4 weeks to quote customer on a simple deal? not because of sales fault. Only focus on enterprise customer. Interesting tactic to get more $ from customer, which I find it not ethical. HR only protect the company's interest, not the employee's Premium price for all offerings. Not competitive in most cases.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the right people. Restructuring to keep your shares per earning will not last long. The upper management doesn't know anything on the ground and are merely spreadsheet warriors. Why do I need to write advice to management when they don't even care?
