    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Best for new hires fresh out of college these days; or workers in cheap foreign countries

    Cons

    No loyalty to anything but their stock price through at least 2015
    10+ years of dedication as a top performer netted little if any raises in last 7 years
    Prepare for more cutbacks and offshoring
    Friends who were 2 years short of retirement laid off and denied pension
    Survivors left wondering when the axe will hit them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top execs, your shameful treatment of loyal employees, offshoring their jobs to anywhere cheaper, all in the name of propping up the stock price is going to bite you. Customer satisfaction is plummeting as foreign workers quickly jump ship to the next best paying thing.
