    Solve critical business problems with some of the largest organizations in the world

    Processes and inter-product politics make it difficult to grow product and compete against vendors

    Pros

    Work from home, good colleagues, work rewarding

    Cons

    IBMers are aggressive and bordering on rude with limited respect to others, not sufficient staff so the workload is incredible requiring working over 60 hours a week to stay afloat. Management is not to be trusted. Salary is not competitive and retention strategies are not employed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and reduce the layoffs because the ones who remain suffer with extremely large workloads. Also look at employee compensation as it is below average.
