    Pros

    IBM has some of the best talent in the world and a leading culture of cooperation and collaboration that is unmatched. When everything comes together, the opportunities are some of the most interesting projects and problems that could ever be encountered. Staff are given the ability to solve problems the best way that they see fit within the reasonable budget and staff constraints. If you want to travel the world at a moment's notice, IBM is the place to work for.

    Cons

    Management sometimes accidentally stifles the organic long term success generated by individual performers when chasing unrealistic quarterly goals. As a result, during the review cycle, performance that would have been regarded as outstanding at any other time goes unrecognized if it didn't happen to match up with that particular quarter or year's goals, leaving the resources who performed above and beyond empty handed and demoralized.

    Advice to Management

    Performance drivers and incentives do not match or reinforce our core values. The company should be reorganized to recognize individual contributions and not just bottom line organization performance against unrealistic goals agreed to by management who is disconnected from the realities of the workforce. Managers who do not take care of the staff who are the engine that runs this company should be disciplined and in some cases removed from their posts.
