    Pros

    Highly respectable company that handles many top products in their fields. IBM Software Group has a diverse product line so its possible to gain many skills which are in demand at other companies.

    Cons

    Can be a tough work environment, depending on the area. The hours are usually longer than expected. The ability to move up (at least in the US) can be limited.

  2. Many opportunities at IBM
