    Pros

    IBM is a large organization. You have opportunities to change your job/role without having to change your company. Management generally respects your right of work-life balance.

    The company culture does not value much on improving product quality to a high standard, especially in terms of simplicity and usability, sometimes performance. Bigger problems are strategy and the ability to execute.

    Employee first. Hire the best people. Focus on product quality.
