    Pros

    Flexibility is the only pros. Besides that there is no any other pros I see working at IBM.

    Cons

    poor salary
    poor compensation
    Bad politics
    if you have some godfather then you are the boss and you can get whatever you want.
    Since they have thousands of employee around they dont think much about it bcoz they if not you then somebody else.

    Advice to Management

    Guys improve... lot to improve.
