I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay, but raises limited to top performers.

Cons

Increased only given to top contributors.
PBC (appraisal) system is flawed and is based on a skew to meet IBM's financial objectives rather than employee's contribution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop new appraisal system which is based solely on employee's contribution. Remove the tie to financials. Most employees would rather get a fair appraisal and no money that a bad appraisal to justify no money.
