    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Many really intelligent people work at IBM. High innovation and strong teamwork come naturally to anyone who focuses on their work and cares about the product(s) being developed. IBM is very serious about work/life balance.

    Cons

    IBM claims to "pay for performance" and they do. However, the differentiation on pay is not as strong as I would logically expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over the last decade, I have observed two main areas where IBM could improve.
    1. The process for identifying and addressing poor performers within teams seems slow. Perhaps it is bound by corporate process.
    2. Try to limit the amount of team changes, management/executive changes, and project changes. Increased frequency of changes leads to lower morale.

    Pros

    Ability to work in a company that can deliver anything, that large enterprises might need in the area of supporting businesses with the best possible IT delivery

    Cons

    Technocracy. Too much led by Operations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overestimate your powers, influence the people who really decide the direction
