    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    - breadth and depth of the industries you can work on
    - opportunity to travel if desired
    - many clever people you can learn from
    - great to build foundations
    - graduate salary is very competitive to market rate
    - many learning opportunities

    Cons

    - salary is not at the higher end of the market rate (it's at the average end)
    - performance rating can be subjective depending on manager you get
    - depending on demand, may not get a role you like
    - lots of red tape to do in your own time
    - work life balance sometimes hard to find if project is behind schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've seen many great and clever employees leave IBM due to the salary not being competitive enough. It appears like IBM would rather pay more for an experienced hire rather than increase the salary of an existing IBM employee. IBM need to either become more competitive with their salary or improve their employee recognition programs or employee benefits to retain their employees.
