    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, casual work environment, (with management support) it is easy to get involved in volunteering and community outreach initiatives, strong brand, mentoring placement

    Cons

    Very top-down management style, and low and mid-level management are unwilling to try new approaches (no matter how logically sound the suggestion is, change is viewed as a liability). Focus is on investment in emerging markets, and the focus in mature markets is on cost reduction. Although salaries are decently competitive, bonuses are not. Career growth opportunities are primarily administrative-based or in management.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce administrative tasks for technical staff, allowing them the time to apply high-level skills. Promote cross-training of early career IBMers immediately.
