Many positions moving to Brazil

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Oakbrook Terrace, IL (US)

I have been working at IBM

ProsWork at home is great.
Benefits are good
I thought I would have more Pros, but there aren't any left.

ConsVery long hours - easily work 11-12 hour days and still far behind in work
Most work in my area moved to Brazil
No time for education
Constant threat of layoffs...every quarter. I'm just hoping I get it next and get it out of the way. I've probably skirted 8-10 of them already.
Used to perform real analytical work, now we just comply to business controls, perform the minimal work necessary and that's it. No innovation or ...no time for it

Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees time to actually perform their work and do a good job. I sit in meetings for 6-7 hours a day. Useless....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
