Pros

Pay was really high compared to what I'm supposed to get for being so junior. Nice office, really cool building, and really great people. A flexible schedule, yoga lessons, and gym. The company is really large and you feel like you belong.

Cons

No catered food and other things you can expect from a place like Google I guess. Also lots of bureaucratic tape I find. I didn't really get affected by that too much but I know my co-workers did.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less tape. More food.

    Pros

    There are many reasons to work at IBM. Here are but a few: the opportunities for advancement, global collaboration, and fast-paced business environment. The people are fantastic - intelligent, committed, and innovative. The compensation and benefits are unparalleled, and IBM is a great place for women to work. There is alot of work-life balance which is invaluable to working parents. Although many people don't realize it, IBM offers employment opportunities for employees with a wide range of educational backgrounds besides technical... such as medical, scientific, quantitative, legal, financial, and communications.

    Cons

    So much work is being moved out of the United States, so there is alot of pressure on U.S. managers and employees. There is constant reorganization, so your job is routinely changed and work consolidated to the near breaking point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more truly global look at your workforce. Understand the value, commitment and dedication U.S. workers bring to the table, and hire within the U.S. again. I think it is extremely short-sighted to move so many aspects of the business to much less politically and economically stable world regions. Also, provide equal pay to men and women with the same jobs!
