    Pros

    The people you meet at IBM truly are the best. I experienced personal and professional growth due to the people. Work/Life Balancing is a great benefit. The pay and benefits are pretty good compared to the other companies in the area.

    Cons

    I witnessed a lot of micro management by the 2nd lines. Stress Level is pretty high, which would be normal under certain circumstances, but not when it's unnecessary...->Micromanagement. Let the folks do their jobs

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. Stop micromanaging your employees as you have the best of the best working for you....
