    Pros

    Professional development is infinite at IBM with the full spectrum of positions from engineering to business. Deal with state-of-the-art in technology solutions. One of the few companies which do the entire spectrum in the IT industry from hardware to software, everything can be done in-house if needed. Best reasonable respect given to employees regarding work-life balance. Have to possibilities to explore and find the exact position that interest you. The employee, including first line managers have excellent people skills. IBM has its hands in very special markets due to its specialties and legendary status.

    Cons

    One of the largest companies in the world comes with a large amount of possibilities but with a slow response to feedback. Compensation is right at industry average levels.

    Advice to Management

    Respond, ask, talk to the employees under the first line managers much more often. Have 2nd, 3rd, 4th llne manager come out and visit teams more often.

    Pros

    Work, life balance is realistic and very advantageous. Flexibility in work schedule and location is left to mobile employees giving you the opportunity to live anywhere in the world.

    Company is committed to social responsibility and maintains very competitive and liberal employment policies. Great corporate values.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling for associate partners. Still old boys network. Company needs to walk the talk. Lip service given to many real, day-to-day policies that employees are supposed to live by. Company often alters annual policies mid year making it difficult to live up to personal business commitments. Employees often bogged down by internal paperwork and bureaucracy making it difficult to get work done.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic about promoting and advancing top performers.
