    Pros

    IBM is good place to work of new graduates. There are a lot of smart people you can learn a lot from them. But if you find you have to be promoted, you should go!

    Cons

    Sometime, it is hard to get help outside of your team if you have no good references like a manger. Management only care what customers care. So your ideas may be discarded for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    If you can really know how to deal with your manager and high level management, that will be good sign to be promoted soon!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent staff, most very professional...not too much dead wood left now! Flexible working means most staff can work from home with hours to suit them (as long as tey deliver on time!)

    Cons

    Why, in a company with $100b turnover and $16b of cash reserves is moral in the UK SO LOW. In the department I worked a survey in 2006 had an employee satisfaction rating at 55%, the target was to get it 75%...its now at 25%.

    Advice to Management

    Just too many layers of management, from the employee at the bottom to Salm Palmisano at the top, there are 15 layers of management..too may senior execs only concernerd with their bonus payments, and 'job for the boys' mentality
