IBM has trouble getting out of its own way. Hopefully this is changing.

    Pros

    Great talented and friendly people! Lots of flexibility in organizing one's work, choosing projects, deciding how much one want to get involved, etc... . Lots of resource at your disposal! Within IBM I always felt very protected and respected. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs lead to constant rumors true or false, which lead to a state of fear. Employees tend to forget what they have; instead focus on what they could lose and often become paralyzed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of mid management, Between 8 and 12 layers is really way too many!
    Unfortunately I don't think it is going to happen any time soon, as mid management starting at 3rd level and up is always spared during the layoffs. It does make sense as they are the very folks who make the decision on who will be axed :)
