    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Great access to many resources. There are many opportuniites to mentor and and be a mentee. IBM has access to many training opportunities.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive and are not that comprehensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the approval chain to get things approved. It shouldn't take 3 months to get something approved, especially on projects that have a hard deadline.

    Pros

    Name recognition, international company, decent pay

    Too many acquired companies make up a disjointed corporation with no consistency.

    Don't tell employees they have a career when all they really have is a job.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Prospecting is good at IBM because you don't need to explain to accounts who IBM is.

    Cons

    IBM is a big, difficult company in which to work and hard to get things done. Furthermore, jobs are being outsourced and the foreign staff, while very nice, don't get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the big picture - outsourcing isn't all it is cracked up to be. Loosen up on all the red tape and bureaucracy. There is a reason why IBM isn't as profitable as other software companies and the people aren't the reason.

    Pros

    The more you negotiate the better the position would be. The irony is person who do not have basics in your domain would interview and decide your growth in the organization

    Cons

    If the level of entry is good, your life is good. otherwise, it is really miserable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The PDF concept is a nonsense, why because, the SME panel who reviewed my work do not belong to my domain at all.
