    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance, easy to work remotely. Pay is satisfactory. Company policies can be short sighted and frustrating.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. Especially if you're not a typical role like a developer. Employee evaluations are subjective, it all depends on your management. Each team works differently. Overall the IBM culture is friendly and fair, but if you join a recent aquisition, for example, you may not be treated "fairly" by the non-IBM environment. Work environment has become depressing over the years, with most people working from home. Not a lively place to work anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the evaluation system. It's ridiculous that you can't have a rock star team, and someone has to be at the bottom with risk of being fired - all based on one manager's opinion? Focus more on employee motivation - keep quality talent.
