    Pros

    Local management is in tune with employee concerns and peers are excellent engineers and technicians always willing to help.

    Cons

    Upper management is focused on 2015 roadmap and does not adequately communicate the technology roadmap for the company and how that translates into the different business areas and day-to-day jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Perception is that 2015 roadmap will be met at ALL costs. This is destroying employee morale and hampering IBM's ability to constantly reinvent itself, adapt to the changing technology landscape, and even meet the roadmap's goals.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, leading edge development. Work life balance is excellent -
    1st and 2nd line management are great - understanding and easy to work with.

    Development is pushing the envelop of the technology and exploring the many space.

    Team are mostly very collaborative. Team members for most part helping each other to grow not competing again each others.

    Cons

    Salary is very stagnant below market average. Yearly bonus is low and sometime forfeited.
    Other benefits tend to degrade every year.

    There is a double edge sword for very stable team b/c team becomes Top heavy; consequently, it is difficult to advance.
