    Good old boy network is a problem. They tend to promote people they like. If you are not close to someone you have a difficult time getting promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people more. Get out in the field and find out what customers really want. There is too much job overlap, too many people doing the same job. Somethime you feel like you are not unique in what you are doing.

    Pros

    Plenty of room for professional growth if you are a driven person who will seek out the many opportunities within the company. Flexible management that allows you to chart your career path. Great benefits package. Pretty good work life balance such as "unlimited sick days" (Granted you work from home for some of those days to maintain your utilization goals).

    Cons

    As a consultant working at the client site it you can feel isolated from the company because contact with other IBMers can be sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication to employees at client sites.
