    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Great Brand
    Great American Company
    Safe
    Decent pay (but not great pay also not well-adjusted for high-cost locales)
    Some very bright and interesting coworkers (mean employee quality just slightly above average; probably not a corporate objective to do too much better than that as they cannot compensate at a level that the truly great employees might demand)

    Cons

    Not as safe as it used to be, plenty of US layoffs and jobs moving overseas
    Bureaucratic
    Run by bean-counters
    Cult of the salesman
    Good, not great
    No work/life balance in consulting, though I'm told it's good elsewhere in IBM
    What have you done for me lately?
    No real bonus
    Draconian expense policies
    Resists change
    Large size = No individual relevance to unit or corporate success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget about next quarter, think about the next 100 years
    Quit trying to squeeze blood from a stone
    Your clients and your employees are more important than your stock price
