"IBM benefits package."
The benefits package at IBM is excellent (health, vision, dental). The 401K plan is also good. The company has recently changed its "remote work location" policy, and now requires most of its employees to either drive to an IBM site to work, move so they can do so, or leave the company.

Information Technology Specialist in Brno:
Pros: All the learning opportunities you ever wanted, trainings courses certifications projects etc.
Cons: Almost all benefits are cut, except for health insurance, no meal vouchers, no bonuses ( this was cut IBM worldwide in 2014), for 3700 employees there is 1 ( one ) relaxation room with room for 3 ! Employees ... Since it was created I have yet to actually benefit from it. There is a chronic and general lack of motivation, and no matter how much you spin your wheels it will take you nowhere, until you your self will lose your motivation. That's why they always put in all job postings that they are searching for self motivated people, because the company will do next to nothing to motivate you.
