    Get everything you can up front, because once they have you employed you'll have to beg.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Good pay, vast array of training and internal credentialing opportunities. The health benefits are also very competitive. Reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    Hard to advance, and the company makes it very difficult to move around in the company. Each practice area is fairly territorial. Also, their love affair with their own inferior proprietary software programs (e.g. Lotus Notes) makes your life difficult on a daily basis. They are a "tech company" in name only sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Lotus Notes. Provide a decent program to mentor incoming employees. Quit using a bell curve to assess performance.
