    Only 3 weeks of vacation to start

    A decent amount of big company bureaucracy
    You have to use Lotus Notes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are two things that IBM could do to improve in my opinion - 1) provide a more open environment that did not force everyone to use Lotus Notes...it is reviled among many in the organization (except those that have never used another tool for email)...this does not have to mean Outlook (which is worse), just allow people to use whatever POP3/IMAP email client they want to use, and 2) improve the perks just a little bit versus competing high tech companies...some sites don't even have free coffee any more, let alone free soda or food, maybe provide a little better vacation package for US employees (4 weeks instead of 3) and slightly more coverage on health care...
