    Pros

    IBM has many possibilities as you decide on what you would like to do in your career. It has such a breadth of solutions for clients that will allow you to partner with them on strategic initiatives. There are many rewards in this as you become a needed team member of your client. You get a chance to learn a lot and work with many brilliant scientists.

    Cons

    Compensation is a problem at IBM you sometimes get caught in a rut unless you truly allow them to understand your worth.

    Advice to Management

    True focus on individuals and measurements of success that motivate employees.

    Pros

    Lots of great products and a wide variety of positions. You have the opportunity to travel and even work in countries all around the world.

    Cons

    Company has changed a lot in 20 years. It used to be a great, fun place to work. Now, however, the entire company is run by accountants. Not nearly the creative freedom that use to be there. The Wild Duck is extinct.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the employees to do the right thing. Fire 80% of the accountants. Even the lawyers are better to work with than the accountants now.
