Pros

- There is always a chance to move somewhere else within the company

Cons

- HR is helpless
- Salary is pretty average. Don't expect to earn a lot of money there
- PBC
- You'll hear lot's of talks about IBM values but that's just talks - nobody in higher management or HR cares about them or you particularly
- Roadmap 2015
- Eternal expenses freeze

Advice to Management

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    allows for flexibility in how time is worked

    Cons

    no salary increases, want you to exceed 60hr/wk to maintain targets and yet somehow maintain work /life balance

    Advice to Management

    You are painting everyone with the same brush, a single work oriented person can work 24 hours a day, but a parent of young children cannot be pushed that hard and still be able to enjoy thier family
