    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.

    Pros

    flexible work environment, good health benefits the ability to manage your workload and work schedule. You get to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry and you can always find someone willing to help you with anything.

    Cons

    Pay increases are all but non existent even for top performs. Executive management has no long term vision. Business is managed in 90 day increments, and while IBM talks about client first, it's all about Executive compensation and EPS

    Advice to Management

    Time to dump our CEO. 9 straight losing quarters and your 2015 roadmap will be yet another IBM EPIC FAILURE !
