Pros

Job flexibility, good compensation, friendly environment, good benefits and vacation days, unlimited sick leave, good short term disability plan and good opportunity to move within IBM.

Cons

If you work remotely then you have an disadvantage. You can't move up the chain very easily. Working with global teams require off hours meetings,etc.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, comfort, nice co-workers, get to travel on occasion, status.

    Cons

    Never ending layoffs, job description is always changing, always being moved to new teams, you can be laid off at any time for anything, it was always scary in that sense. No feeling of job or company loyalty. Difficult to move up the ladder unless you're best friends with specific people.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule, no problem changing schedule or getting time off
    Can work from home, 40% of work force does so
    Name recognition

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, hard to get things done quickly
    Management focused, at least in my division
    Very hard to move up, performance reviews are basically zero sum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way way too many layers of management. Don't isolate employees so much.
