Pros

Great work-life balance, flexibility, chance to work with very smart people. Allows creativity. People are generally very nice.

Cons

Salary/benefits not really competitive with Silicon Valley, and really not tied closely enough to performance. Still stuck in old habits, and hasn't really adapted to try to run with Silicon Valley. HR has too much power.

Advice to Management

Try to compete with Google for talent. Work harder to incent performance.

    Pros

    - The IBM Name looks great on a Resume

    Cons

    - Continued shift to 'globalization' a/k/a sending jobs to countries with lower wages, this not only results in continued cuts in the US Staff, but when cuts are made the 'survivors' are expected to pick up the slack. - Lack of focus on the customer, IBM continues to think that they set the standard and that their clients should fit 'in the box'. This lack of flexibility is causing frustration with clients and employees.
