dont care about you as a person, fired over 20k people worldwide during global pandemic. I learned that management doesnt care about your career and they fire top performers.

IBM started turning downhill since 2008. I've been managed poorly and finally left the company in 2016. The culture is toxic, technical staff are treated poorly, even beyond the point of being illegal.

It has a brilliant environment to learn new things. I have worked on multiple projects and gained skills like AWS, Linux and VMWARE. Flexible working hours is a plus.

I was with IBM for 3 years and I am gratefull to IBM for learning everything I did and giving me an oppurtunity to grow and make a life changing decision that I am super proud of. Company structure is good and lots of good people but job security is scary as even with rest of companies are constantly outsourcing. Thank you for the experience and I am gratefull for everything learned
Pros
Life/Work Balance
Cons
Job Safety

My typical day at work is check my emails about 15 min to see of any tickets or customer issues. Then I check my ticketing queue to see if there is any new tickets. I update my tickets frequently and keep the customer updated that relates to the tickets. I also close and update any changes/tickets that is in my queue.
Pros
Working with different technology is great.
Cons
Sometimes dealing with irate customer.

After years of layoffs and cutbacks we're down to staffing levels that cannot suffer more than one sick day. Stress levels are incredibly high. The expectation is always that your name is next on the layoff list, and has been so since well before the recent economic problems. No cost of living raises. Adjusted for inflation I'm now paid several thousands of dollars a year less than when I was hired. Basically this company should no longer be thought of as a leader, but rather as an entry level position.
Pros
Work from home! That's about it.
Cons
5 year old, 14" laptop. Culture of treating people as capital.
