    Pros

    Flexible work at home and work life balance. Respectful of individuals and overall good team environment. Attracts some of the brightest and best. Good overall Management and Leadership for the most part. Good open sharing of ideas and information. True global focus. Good corporate culture on the whole

    Cons

    Limited career options, especially for US workers. Constant concern over potential layoffs and cutbacks, or offshoring of US jobs. Slow career advancement and limited promotion opportunities. Salaries increasingly are not keeping up with the marketplace. Very low to nonexistent bonus opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on retaining more of your experienced talent, and keep compensation competitive

    Fair. Expect to work hard, and even if you are a top performer, rewards are few.

    Pros

    Core development areas are stable. Very Client focused. Well run business. ie. I'm not expecting them to go bankrupt.

    Cons

    Ever shifting work structure from US to AP. In engineering, performance is not rewarded, even high performers get minimal monetary reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful to not lose your core talent as you shift work load to AP. Growth may be in AP, but do not lose focus of the customer base that got IBM here.
