    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at IBM (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Team collaboration
    challenging projects
    results-oriented
    no micro management
    ability to explore other functions

    Cons

    minimal face time, flexibility with work hours comes with a price - while you don't have to worry about taking time during the typical 8-5 hours, you are also expected to make yourself available for Global colleagues, which can mean very early mornings and/or late night meetings.
