    I have been working at IBM (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working here was the best decision I ever made. The management is knowledgable and most of the employees are intelligent.

    Cons

    I did not like the slow progress of projects. I often felt that I could do things better. I had to leave the company because of this.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to be more open to suggestion regarding projects. I felt that things moved a bit slowly sometimes when solutions were obvious.

    I have been working at IBM (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and work/life balance (at least for my team). Great people to work with. Ample vacation time and good health benefits....although you can't go anywhere for vacation if you are hemorrhaging due to low salary.

    Cons

    Very low salary, way below market in some cases (mine). Constant worry about being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and replace management with new people....15 consecutive quarters of revenue decline....I mean come on already.
