I have been working at IBM

Pros

Great benefits, great opportunities to grow and advance in a company of its size. Always amazed at what others are doing in other divisions.

Cons

The company is huge. The size is a problem and the politics are always in play. Some managers are very picky about scheduling even though employees are "encouraged" to take family time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower employees to make decisions on their own without having to go through layers of management fat. You have some of the smartest employees in the world, utilize their strengths.

    Pros

    Great processes and breadth of knowledge in the company. Many online communities to help find your way. Great sense of belonging, and simple vision and value proposition!

    Cons

    Too large and somemtimes not personal. A bit too beurocratic, and if you don't have the support of upper management, you could get lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways of reducing the levels of beurocracy and break down the barriers for innovation and progress on smaller accounts.
