    Pros

    1. Its as entrepreneurial as you make it to be. If you are the entrepreneurial type, then you are already looking to being on your own, within IBM. If you are not entrepreneurial, be prepared to ask questions and get vague responses.
    2. Colleagues / Peers across Towers are supportive, implying IBM-work-life is universal regardless of Tower.

    Cons

    1. Base Compensation - your market intelli and what your manager tell you are not compatible. So where else is this not the case.
     2. Additional Comp - Seek and Read the rules carefully. IBM is not giving $$ away. 2012 is perceived as an Employers Market.
    3. at companies the size of IBM you work within Policy and Procedures, Approval Limits, etc. If you are entrepreneurial, you will chase down the approval routes and document each one on the road to getting things done. If you are not entrepreneurial you will find the IBM Policy and Procedures, Approval Limits, a great Selective buffer to actually NOT getting anything done.

    Advice to Management

    From Director level up, hire more from the outside for a fresh perspective on balancing Risk with Change.
