Pros

Travel discounts for hotels and rental cars.

Cons

You are truly a number - your individual accomplishments and contributions mean nothing. IBM is all talk when it comes to values.

Advice to Management

If you want to have a successful consulting practice, consider investing in the product you are offering - your PEOPLE.

    Pros

    a good work environment, with flexibility, comprehensive healthcare benefits and good retirement benefits. it's a good place to work for people who have family.

    Cons

    pay is ok, i would say average. not a lot of young people and a lot of projects have been on the trend of outsourcing to asia or other parts of the world.

    Pros

    There is great work hour flexibility. The benefits are also quite good. Generally I've found that there are good people who work here.

    Cons

    Overly bureaucratic at times. It can take time to get important things done. Bonuses aren't great, nor are the raises. I'm not sure why things are so tight as far as budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Great atmosphere, but you have to pay talent to stay.
