    Pros

    Well diversified company with many opportunities for advancement and leadership. Management does a good job articulating your place in the company and how you can personally help achieve the organization's goals.

    IBM also has a flexible work/life balance and work from home program, but be careful as with some managers, "out of sight; out of mind".

    Cons

    Many times you will find yourself spending unnecessary time working through "red tape" in order to get things done, which can mean many late nights in the office or working multiple weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IBM does a good job of defining challenging career paths and mentoring top talent employees, but they need to spend more time on compensation and rewards.

    Pros

    resume builder, experience, ability to learn from others. The benefits are very good, hands down. The 401k match is the best in the consulting industry. You will be able to learn a great deal in a very short time frame

    Cons

    very large, too bureaucratic, managers with poor people skills. There are a good number of managers who are out to benefit themselves and no one else. They get bonuses based on their staff utilization and meeting numbers. Many IBM employees are just numbers to the staff. Its all about who your manager is at IBM. Bad manager = bad experience. Good manager = good experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Large amount of technical staff without people management skills
