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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Great flexibility, great peopele to work with, Need to be your own advocate

    Cons

    Moral is low because everyone there is over 30 years with the company and ready to be retired..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who truly do the day to day work and keep the place running. Also know that there is about to be a mass exit of skills retiring out the door

    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.
