Pros

- Highly skilled professionals to collaborate with across functions
- Competitive salaries
- Good (not great) benefit package
- Global teaming

Cons

- Executives short term focused
- Culture has shifted from client and employee centric to 'make this quarters financials' at any cost
- Benefits keep getting cut
- High pressure environment impacts work/life balance

Advice to Management

Communicate clear long term strategy
Return focus to creating clients and employees for life not just the next 6-12 months
Empower employees in the trenches to make 'fast' client decisions and not get second guessed by middle management layer.

    Pros

    There was great help from older seasoned sales professionals in the office.

    Cons

    Lots of the older elder IBM'ers like to pull rank and look down upon the young new guys moving into the office. They look for any and everything to tell your superiors almost as if your back in middle school again getting told on.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the future and not the old has beens.... The market is changing and its the young youth that will take the company to the next level.

    Pros

    Great name for your resume, opportunity to get experience in different industries. IBM will over pay for people to come into their company

    Cons

    Working from home gets old fast. Unlikely you'll become a CEO or executive from your couch.
