    Large global company
    Financially stable
    Leading edge technology
    Continuously evolves to maintain technology leadership
    Broad and diverse opportunities geographic specific
    Optimization of workload and expense management

    Cons

    Revenue growth has been slow
    Major market growth has diminished with the overall economic climate
    IBM continues to shift resource and mission leading to limited opportunities in the US
    IBM has chosen a strategy to be no more than competitive with compensation & benefit
    Moral in the US continues to diminish due to strategies
    Communications is also tightly controlled leading to employee trust issues
    HR policies are antiquated, and not consistent with building organizational strength

    Way too much internal processes, procedures, business controls, audits, private interests ...

    Former Employee - Technical Support Manager in Sofia (Bulgaria)

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    + Great team and internal cooperation

    Cons

    - Management did not keep their promises
    - Management betrays trust
    - Zero attention of how the staff feels, if there are problems HR dept. can only record it - but not react to it
    - Almost no salary increase and promotion in the last 3 years
    - No recognition from management side
    - HUGE amount of internal processes, procedures, regulations, business controls reviews, audits. In the same time country & above country management expects the numbers to be delivered regardless of the excessive administrative overhead
    - HUGE above country structure with a lot of people overlapping their roles and responsibilities
    - Interests of the company are not defended - all possible transactions are pushed through "Business Partners", direct business is deeply unwanted and all local management is avoiding it
    - And many more ... but those were the most important topics that irritated me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign ASAP and let this company move forward
