    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    There is so much opportunity to provide value and make an impact since there is just so much work to go around.

    Cons

    There are many areas significantly understaffed given the business commitments made through senior management and through some of the poor budgeting processes. This means that there's too much work and often people are asked to sacrifice work-life balance. At the same time, employees have more control than some realize since there is a respect for quality work and personal boundaries if one sets them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in your organization... and not just the ones that make the most noise.
