Pros

Large company with a lot of options across the company. A lot of products to bring together to solve a customers problem. Vacation is managed between you and your manager.

Cons

Draconian cost controls. Low moral across the company. Death by conference call. 401K is only funded in October - so if you leave before (or are laid off), you get nothing. The out of pocket cost for insurance for an average family is nearly $1000/month

Advice to Management

Bring the little things back. Thank you Awards. Sales comp plans that make people feel they can make money.

    Pros

    Continuing education, research resources, above average benefits in 2009

    Cons

    Top down management with unrealistic objectives. 80% – 90% of work day on conference calls which lead to having 12 – 14 hours days lack of investment to update infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    Respect the personal sacrifices made by those people who generating the revenue for IBM. Restore the family values that IBM once had.
