    Pros

    Many good and knowledgeable coworkers to work with. Working with leading edge technology in a large global company is good on the resume.

    Cons

    Stressful place to work due to constant layoffs and increased workloads. Management only interests in $ instead of treating employees with respect resulting in deteriorated workplace environment.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees.

    Pros

    Home office, flexible work hours, access to lots of information and products.
    If you are efficient with your work/time you can learn new stuff.
    Computers tend to not have the performance you need to perform the job, refreshes every 3-5 years.

    Cons

    IBM will not prepare you for the job, it does not want you to move fast. It is a sales corporation, more than IT.
    You do not get points for doing technical work, you get points for brown nosing and letting everybody know you are the "something" guy (even when you don't know it).
    Management is bad, catastrophic bad with very few exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth to employees on where they can get in a time frame, do not build false hopes. People will leave eventually, just make sure they know what they will be given and they may not leave angry
