    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Unbelievably large company involved in numerous fields. A lot of people with many years of of service/employment, so if you wait it out a few years, there should be a mass-retirement, opening up many senior-level positions. Depending on area, work-life balance can be excellent.

    Cons

    Company is crazy to commit to EPS growth time-based targets. Focus on EPS is affecting proper business decision-making. It can seem that employees are liabilities first, with a distant afterthought about employees potentially being assets. Frustrating to see mediocre employees stay with the company for so long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much of mid-to-upper level management seems focused on empire-building. For a technology company, it's surprising how non-technical lower-level management can be. Management needs to find a faster/more efficient way to let go of under-performing employees.
