    Pros

    You work around very intelligent people. Some of the technology is leading edge from research. People are overall easy to work with.

    Cons

    Can be a very high stress environment with long hours and no weekends off. Depending on where you work, the flexibility may be gone for working remotely. Also, there is constant worries among co-workers that this year could be their year to be let go. It can be a rather uncomfortable place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management doesn't matter. Generally, the first line managers do the best they can with what they have, to them, keep it up. To the high ranking executives, I would be concerned about the boots on the ground doing the work. IBM can't meet its goals by cutting alone.
