I worked at IBM

Pros

IBM offered excellent benefits compared to others in the industry, they also do well at providing more than adequate training

Cons

Management seems to be blind that you can't continue on an exponential reduction of resources and believe that you can continue to do the same or better with less resources

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop cutting muscle and build back strength to the company
