    Pros

    Working at IBM gives an opportunity to learn state of the art technologies and applications. Its a very good place to learn.

    Cons

    Being a big organization one might feel lost, managers do not gives attentions to the growth of the employees and promotions are not given on the basis of merit.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the People Manager's responsibilities should be given to Project Managers, as People managers are not well connected to all the project's of the reporting employees.
