    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Solid training for their products and the market
    Decent non-compensation benefits
    Solid first line management (if you are lucky)
    Reputation benefits for resumes if you are looking to move

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss
    Advancement is either sold as easy but in reality it is limited
    Too much reliance on virtual education in technical fields

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to focus on what makes them a successful firm, the people and remove the bureaucratic hurdles that have grown organically as they got really large.

    No opinion of CEO
