OK place to work if you don't mind red-tape and being part of a large herd.

I worked at IBM

Pros- performance-oriented culture
- solid benefits
- easy to switch roles
- work/life flexibility
- mature processes & infrastructure
- stability & solid competitive positioning
- good overall senior leadership & strategy

Cons- difficult to realize tangible impacts
- compensation is on the low side for non-technical positions
- high competition for promotions (lots of talent but minimal overall growth in opportunities)

Advice to Senior ManagementDrive non-traditional methods of injecting energy and creativity to somewhat tired workforce. Encourage cross-migration of back-office and customer-facing or consulting positions.
