    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 ManagementAdvice

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