    Pros

    IBM hires great people - positive, hard-working and bright so the people, and teams are great
    IBM supports and even promotes tele-commuting or working from home which allows for work/life balance
    IBM offers lots of training and education and a chance to move to many areas of the business
    IBM hires good management who have good people-management skills
    IBM trusts its employees and has good policies in place between management and staff
    IBM values are excellent

    Cons

    The company has changed over the years. It used to reward its employees with trips, motivational awards, company outings etc. This has all but stopped completely. Quotas were challenging but attainable, allowing one to earn a really good income. That has all but stopped and the environment as of late has been driving employees to meet unrealistic quotas. Lots of pressure on employees. Junior employees are micro-managed with all actions tracked. Top-performing senior sales people are not adequately paid. Job satisfaction has dropped among my colleagues. The famous IBM culture is not the same as before, sadly.
