    Pros

    The only reason I can think of working for IBM is the work/life balance. But the company is keeping layoff people and outsourcing jobs. So the workload is getting heavier every day.

    Cons

    Low Salary and worst benefits in the industry
    Very political work environment
    No career opportunities at all.
    Old technologies and not used in world outside.
    The only way to pop up company profit is to layoff and outsource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees nice and don't think of them as slave and cost.

    Pros

    Depth of products and cutting edge research.

    Cons

    This is a company that is only concerned with sales. Their concern for their clients is minimal. All they care about is sales. If you are a well educated exec used to delivering creative solutions to clients this is not the place for you. This is a blue collar organization littered with people from unheard of schools who resent anyone who comes in from the outside with a strong set of skills. I would not recommend it to a good friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about the client and less about selling into the client. Hire people who are well educated and can bring new ideas for improving customer satisfaction.
