    Pros

    Challenging work. Fantastic People. Many different career paths. Opportunity to work with colleagues and clients around the globe. Leadership training. Working for talented, experienced individuals.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the lack of autonomy -- at the individual level, the dept, even the country level. This can stifle innovation and personal growth. Lack of recognition and fun.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to allow employees more freedom and support to do new things -- take risks. And recognize them for doing so.

    Still a good company to work for, just.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is acknowledged more than most companies and there is huge scope for moving between business units. Good career move and great training options though. IBM finds it difficult to fire people who have a successful career record.

    Cons

    A consistent erosion of benefits packages over time at IBM. Poor benefit schemes. Little sales culture. Huge beaurocracy.

    Advice to Management

    A current employee earns £x, but the market rate for his salary is £x+20%. If he leaves, you'll need to replace him with someone from a competitor, who already earns £x+20%, so you need to offer him £x+40% to tempt him away. Wouldn't it have been cheaper, easier and more efficient just to pay the current employee the market rate salary?
