Pros

Great benefits like 401K, Health/Dental. Competitive salary for new hires and great training program. Diverse workforce, smart people and managers, culture is great -- as well as a nice work/life balance -- when you aren't trying to meet a deadline

Cons

Raises are minimal, performance reviews are done by project managers, while promotions are done by managers whom you rarely see. High ulitizalition targets, and bonuses do not reflect the hard work and long hours.

    Pros

    lots to learn. Most people are nice

    Cons

    Managers don't care about individuals' growth but trying to get their own asses covered.

    Advice to Management

    People will keep leaving if you don't pay them fair salaries.

  2. IBM used to be a pillar of the community.

    Pros

    Global company with the potential to contribute to the development of their employees.

    Cons

    Fragmented into fiefdoms. Those that advance are more sycophant than able. Management is so focused in their quarterly survival and political posturing, that they have little time to actually work. Management mostly operates by the belief that if they shoot others' lights out, theirs will shine brighter. Definitely no longer Gestner's IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on ability not nepotism and ability to suck up.
