    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to acquire exp

    Cons

    Very Very poor management, no benefits, very very low salary, the only motivation this company offers is the possibility to acquire experience and run away.
    This type of company remembers me of the communism regime, no appreciation for the work you provide, incompetent people have access to higher positions. The "people managers" have no competency, no basic skills, they care only about themselves. If you have the “chance” to be promoted to a higher position with bigger responsibilities and more workload, nothing will change, still same salary and no real benefits beside the experience.
    Completely ignorant to the real problems in the company, all point of view is imposed, if you want to comment will be banned, isolated and eventually you will have enough and quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You bring no real benefit to the company, no value add, you benefit only from your employees hard work. You are not real managers, you have no involvement what so ever in the company values.
    1 mil $ was spent to reconstruct Sam office and you ask your employees to work more because we are in a economic crisis era.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule. 401k match is better than most.

    Cons

    401k match recently changed so that we get the company match at the end of the year and ONLY get it if we are employed then. We are challenged to drive and manage technical staff in a fragmented support structure in which accountability is low. Sometimes you get the impression support teams are doing you a favor in resolving a complex issue. Much time is spent teaching processes to technical teams with high turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want compliance to be 100%, accountability for IT controls need to rest solely on first line managers of their respective support towers instead of the account team whom do not have visibility or control over processes.
