    Pros

    They had some good rewards/incentive programs for employees.

    Cons

    Most of the incentive programs and education budgets have been cut out. Raises and bonuses are postponed and often cancelled to make budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Appropriate raises and an occasional bonus is much more motivating than an occasional lunch. The reward system in place creates a competitive atmosphere that does not promote teamwork and most employees become frustrated when they continually go without the raises or bonuses that they are promised.


  2. "Lots of smart people working on a LOT of hardware related stuff"

    Pros

    The company is dedicated to solving big problems and giving their employees the resources, time, and motivation to be creative and innovative. There is a lot of incentive to work on tough problems that nobody has worked on before.

    Cons

    Projects can often get shelved without getting off the ground. It's easy to work on projects that don't go anywhere. There is a big focus on developing patent-able software, but there can be a lack of guidance in terms of what to work on.

    Advice to Management

    It's tough to strike a balance between giving your employees freedom to innovate and making sure that they're contributing something useful. Try to let them know when their work might not be contributing to IBM's bottom line.
