    Pros

    Great company to work for in terms of flexibility of work and home life. People are great and very helpful. The pay is market level, definitely a talent attractor.

    Cons

    Job security is always a worry. Constant restructuring of staff mixed with a very limited ability to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop newer talent by sticking to founding morals. “Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?” - Thomas J. Watson.

    Pros

    There is a big commitment to healthy a work/life balance culture. I work from home almost 100% of the time, and the other times are spent seeing clients.

    Cons

    The company is becoming more sales-oriented than before. No longer are we able to brag about being the R&D powerhouse that we once were. That title now goes to Microsoft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect the IBM image of being an R&D powerhouse, not a sales company.
