    Great work life balance. A great team spirit & somewhere where it's up to you to make the difference (to your career or IBM)

    Lots of bureaucracy and too much focus on measurable cost without enough consideration of the unmeasurable cost of savings.

    You already listen to the 'little people' but more action & genuine concern would be appreciated.
