Pros

very independent work culture. minimal office interaction in your home city; basically you're remote from your home city and travel to your clients. some may view this as a con.

Cons

minimal interaction with managers. excessive paperwork required annually to document annual performance. some may prefer to work independently.

    Pros

    IBM seems very generous with the way it handles its employees. Between the benefits package, IBM events, community discounts, essentially unlimited sick leave, and flexible work schedule, it has made for a fantastic starting point for an IT career.

    Cons

    IBM is implementing a new system for technical support, and it is currently going through understandable growing pains. For the most part management still seems to be trying to figure out how to best handle the new system, and many odd decisions are made that often hinder efficiency in favor of process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to be so afraid of third party software. IBM is really good at many things, but many items in their software portfolio should be scrapped.
