    Current Employee - Project Manager in Lisbon (Portugal)

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits of a global enterprise with a strong position in the market and the clients
    - Salary and benefits are not top, but still competitive
    - Work performance is really valued (depends on the management, but it's usual)
    - Growth opportunities exist, altough it'll require a lot of extra work

    Cons

    - Too many directives and standards
    - Although it's not a cut-throat environment, there are lots of pressure to reduce costs (meaning people)
    - Some people work a lot, others not so much; the first are rewarded if they're lucky, if they're unfortunate they'll be listed for non-renovation anyway, but not all the bad employees are on the leave list
    - Not the most friendly environment; not talking about costume parties, or after hours parties, but it tends to be a very neutral environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the US pressure is for an ever increasing share profit, client value will suffer in meantime, at least if you exclude growth countries.Also I believe expectations are set that are not achievable with such a low resource count (even worse if they're not that good sometimes).
