    Pros

    You're working for an industry leader in their field. There is something to be said about that. I love telling people I used to work for companies they've heard of. It also gives you some credibility in the industry as well.

    Cons

    So many layers of management that decisions are made by people who seriously don't understand anything they are managing. They also do not value the individual, everything is team or group based. While teams are important, everyone knows there is usually a "QB" or "Captain", and IBM does not really acknowledge this at an institutional level.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that while process and procedures are important, individual super heroes often save the day. If IT was so easy that you could "assembly-line" it, no one would need your services.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance - flexibility to get the job done when and how you choose

    Cons

    poor pay, lack of face-2-face time with management, no executive advancement opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Changing the business model every 2 years has not worked. We need all new management.
