Pros

Well diversified company with many opportunities for advancement and leadership. Management does a good job articulating your place in the company and how you can personally help achieve the organization's goals. IBM also has a flexible work/life balance and work from home program, but be careful as with some managers, "out of sight; out of mind".

Cons

Many times you will find yourself spending unnecessary time working through "red tape" in order to get things done, which can mean many late nights in the office or working multiple weekends.

Advice to Management

IBM does a good job of defining challenging career paths and mentoring top talent employees, but they need to spend more time on compensation and rewards.
