Pros

The best part of my experience in IBM was the right mix of engineering and research. While I was working on real product, I also got to solve challenging problems to make my way.

Cons

Did not work long enough to find a downside. Except they are not in a hiring spree. Otherwise great.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work would be most of it. On a side note: finding ways to speed up the logistics of a new hire will help.

    Good projects to work on, management too demanding of employees without proper compensation

    Pros

    Work with intelligent people, actual technology and development work is interesting

    Cons

    The work assigned to teams is consistently and significantly more than the teams can produce in the given schedule. Items/scope is rarely traded off or out, the teams are just required to work more overtime to contain the work effort.

    Advice to Management

    Too much thrashing on work items for the teams reduces the actual time available for development to deliver the product. Everything can't be the highest priority and need to be delivered yesterday.

  2. Great learning experience
