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 Management

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
