    Pros

    IBM is great if you are a technical resource. The architects, engineers, research fellows, etc., are all very sharp and do great things.

    Cons

    Life is not so great if you have a "non-technical" role like business analyst, project management, etc., or are a contractor. You are on the short list for the quarterly layoffs. So, the get a a 5 for techs, and a 1 for non-techs, which equals a 3 rating overall.
