    I have been working at IBM for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Diverse and world-wide services and technology set that is unmatched by competition.

    Cons

    Overly driven by the bottom line at the expense of the real business purpose and promise of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize client satisfaction over stock price. One feeds the other, not vice-versa.

    Pros

    Work with very professional colleagues
    Good teamwork ethic
    Large, Enterprise-scope projects provides excellent exposure and experience.
    Good benefits, health, vacation, 401(k) match.
    Typically long-term employment if you're not a contractor

    Cons

    No upward mobility
    Long, stressful hours
    Stagnant pay for professional, non-managerial employees.
    Constant crisis management
    Zero investment in training, no college program any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your American employees. You've squeezed them so hard that you've killed morale in Global Services. Remember that the recession is over and good employees will repay your lack of loyalty in-kind. You can't manage cash flow to the quarterlies forever without investing in your people and infrastructure.
