    I worked at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    Good overall benefits especially the 401k contribution. Methodical and structured approach to business and planning gives some indication of order. The work level can be manageable and overall the work environment is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    History of moving many high tech positions offshore reduces long term job security in US Frugal to the point of being absurd at times. Pay was decent at first but pay raises were very small. Very bureaucratic. Many levels of approvals and management required to make things happen.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a greater emphasis on understanding value versus just cost. IBM can create it's own little world with it's own realities. Most companies don't live in that world. It would be good to get out more and see what is going on in the broader market. Remote management is good to a point. Sometimes being part of a team means being present.
