Pros

IBM's solid benefits, a stable career path, and a reliable customer base make for a comfortable long-term work environment.

Cons

Difficulty competing with more innovative startups, extensive bureaucracy, and in-fighting between internal brands and products can sometimes make for a frustrating experience.

Advice to Management

Listen to your teams in the field and try to think outside the box occasionally. Stop building shareholder return by minimizing profit sharing bonuses.

    Pros

    Working form home. Flexible hours if you work from home.

    Cons

    70% of this company is now in India. IBM buys companies with no clue what their products are. They lay everyone off 6 months after you help them integrate onto IBM. Internal IBM programs have no manuals and no tech support. Help Desk is in India where no one speaks English. Simple tasks take weeks to complete. IBM does not care about professional development. Upper management does not even get to speak to developers, ever.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy and value your employees more.
