    Pros

    Diverse set of job opportunities. Company has started to realize the need to use best-of-breed tools and is providing them (slack, GHE, macs, etc.). Encourage a diverse workforce. The Watson unit has a lot of great people focused on building out the business.

    Cons

    IBM is a ruthless finance-driven company. New acquisitions and strategic initiatives are given some leeway but soon the financial noose will tighten. Even profitable cash cows get staff cut to the bone to try to improve the bottom line.

    Pros

    Bonuses when we hit our numbers.

    Cons

    IBM has been turned upside down in the last 4 years in Div 16. There is a serious disconnect between annual targets and market reality. Leadership has created a very hostile environment where everyone is fighting for signings.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to clean house with Public Sector Leaders.
