Everything else -- management, scummy practices in dealing with consultants, etc.

Stop treating people like crap.

    Hard work is rewarded. Career opportunities abound but networking skills are a must.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Professional to the core. No arrogance about the great work that is done. Client is king. Work hard to maintain strong partnerships. Great technology that can change the world.

    Cons

    Professionalism can read as too stuffy or boring. While there are some fun events such as a quarterly afternoon with beer and music, it isn't Google/Apple/Facebook-type fun. No awesome bands coming to play, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If folks want a carefree place to work, it isn't likely you will become a manager at IBM. At the low level, it can be more relaxed but as you move up, fun isn't pervasive. I don't think it necessarily should be so I am not sure they should change anything. IBM culture is professionalism even though that may be boring at times - it is dependable.
