    Pros

    Good for leaders, and if you are good at office politics

    Cons

    Layoffs whether the economy is good or bad. Offshoring most development. No free drinks, no budget for anything. no budget even to print business cards. Most employess are highly demotivated.. 2% raises even if you are a top performer.

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    - work-life balance -- work from home allowed

    Cons

    -- Absolutely no meritocracy -- totally based on personal relationships
    -- Raise and bonus are a joke, compared to industry
    -- Career progression is bureaucratic and not merit based

    it is a heavily matrixed organization filled with ego-centric mediocre managers who have no competitiveness in them -- IBM is successful not because of skill but because of size. It needs some decent competition to spin the leaderships head.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get off the manufacturing company mentality!! atleast in GBS. It is consulting business and consultants should be treated as prime assets not "resources"
