    Pros

    IBM are good at ratings and feedback to provide the employee with knowledge about how they are performing and how they could improve. This system will root out those not suited to being an IBMer and they tend to leave the company, which raises the average calibre of staff. Training is excellent and support is always available. High standards of working practice and managerial behaviour keeps employees happy and retains staff. True work life balance can be achieved at IBM and senior banded employees diarise their own time to work around personal commitments.

    Cons

    Salary is an issue and I have seen many excellent IBMers leave the company because they can achieve significantly higher salaries elsewhere. Also, there is no pro-active 121 help with career advancement and I have lost count of the number of times a manager has told me that it is the individual's responsibility to further their own career, but this is very difficult in a company the size of IBM, since you need help from other people to advance. If you are female and planning to take time out to have a family, be prepared for your career to stagnate, there is no mechanism in IBM to give women returning to work a leap forward and this can be very demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base salaries before you lose some of the great talent the company has spent years nurturing. Implement a managed back to work boost service from HR for women returning to work after having a baby.

    Pros

    You can have chances to join in larger project. IBM has quite good management methodology. The company is managed with mature processes. Generally good colleagues, welfare also ok.

    Cons

    The role are specifically separated. It's not so easy to shift from role to role. And rather the company tends to look for resources in the market first.
