    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The name goes a long way. IBM's clients are very impressive.

    Cons

    Having a distributed workforce makes it very hard to get things done, unless you enjoy sitting on conference calls or chatting on SameTime all day long.

    Advice to Management

    I think IBM's push for working at home makes getting things done very difficult. Its nice, but doesn't lead to a very productive workplace when working with the clients IBM services.
