    Pros

    Good name recognition
    Good benefits and learning opportunities
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    They are laying off people to help their stock price. I heard employee count will go from 100,000 to 30,000 over the next two years. Customers suffer because of lack of employee resources and services on their contract is bad.
    I got laid off by a manager. That manager was incompetent and laid off employees to cover that manager's weakness. That manager is still there. Managers can have affairs with their employees. It will be known by upper management, and those managers still work there. That is unexcusable. It seems if you are a manager, you are untouchable.
    I still have a lot of friends who work there and don't like it. They feel that they will enventually be laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to review how competent their managers are. By laying off more and more employees, the stock price will probably go up but customer service will suffer.

    Pros

    401k
    Nice company if you can be a manager

    Cons

    A new company is acquired every two weeks. There is no innovation, just a desire to keep pushing the same products to customers. No interest in knew or open source technology, every tool you use for software development must be built by IBM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to encourage innovation, build something new instead of trying to buy others software to resell them
