    Pros

    The name goes a long way. IBM's clients are very impressive.

    Cons

    Having a distributed workforce makes it very hard to get things done, unless you enjoy sitting on conference calls or chatting on SameTime all day long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think IBM's push for working at home makes getting things done very difficult. Its nice, but doesn't lead to a very productive workplace when working with the clients IBM services.

    In US, pays just enough that you won't leave until you are fired

    Pros

    Work with some very smart and wonderful people. The people "in the trenches" are the best around. I have really enjoyed the teams I have worked with inside the company. Very smart and hard working people.
    Mentoring is available depending on "who you know"
    Some online training can still be had for free. Paid training is extremely limited and you need to take classes on your own time
    Depending on the job, project & manager decent work/life balance and time off can be had

    Cons

    Lots of jobs in US being eliminated
    Work/Life balance can be an issue. Especially when working the global clock (needing to be available to meet with teams in all time zones).
    Enormous pressure to meet deadlines/cut costs, often not realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stock goes up, but US jobs are lost. A tough pill to swallow for an employee in the states.
