    Pros

    IBM has always been very respectful of work-life balance and time off for life events, etc. Leaders are generally very accessible and willing to engage all employee levels. The work can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    The spreadsheet mentality means that they may not always completely understand how to value a good employee whose benefit to the company rises above their bottom line or utilization tallies (particularly in the area of User Experience and other creative/design roles). It was NOT always like this here. It seems back in the earlier part of the decade, we were encouraged to "Do the Right Thing" and were rewarded for our efforts and risk in a more organic way.

    Advice to Management

    The PDFA process is not particularly effective in identifying the best candidates for promotion and, in fact, often sews the seeds of discontent and, in some cases, hysteria in the minds of those who are passed over without sufficient cause.
