    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Working from home is good. There is allot of support and information on the portal for you to be successful but you need to know how to find it.

    Cons

    Although the company supports a work/life balance it is more of a work life integration. Expect to work long hours and do allot of travel. The resource assignment managers are all about meeting their numbers, and have no respect for their consultants as individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the resource assignment managers. I will do fine on my own.

    Overall OK. Innovative products. Great people

    Cons

    Normal bureaucracy of big company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would suggest to management that they change their mentality to become more like a start up company. Probably break groups in smaller groups.
