    Pros

    IBM provides a variety of career options and enables you to practice a good work life balance. You are given challenges after challenges and are recognized for your excellence.

    Its a huge company and hence one might feel lost. Day one in the company is even more so! You might also find the company a bit too process oriented

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Immensely proud of the achievements shown in the 100x100 Centennial film (you should watch it if you work in IT).

    Cons

    Feels like it's peaked - I've been here 10 years and the level of morale has never been lower, mostly down to petty penny pinching when all around there are bigger problems ignored.

    The PBC system is demoralising & most people I know are looking around to what's available due to the constant cost-cutting and lack of payrises - once your joining salary is set you fall steadily further behind the outside world as each year passes.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the unfair and divisive PBC system, better share the profit created by the employees for the shareholders.
