No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits like 401K, Health/Dental. Competitive salary for new hires and great training program. Diverse workforce, smart people and managers, culture is great -- as well as a nice work/life balance -- when you aren't trying to meet a deadline

Cons

Raises are minimal, performance reviews are done by project managers, while promotions are done by managers whom you rarely see. High ulitizalition targets, and bonuses do not reflect the hard work and long hours.

    Be open to your employees and be accountable for your actions.
