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

Pros

It is part of the corporate culture to help your colleagues.
IBM is in many countries seen as a "semi-local" company in contrast to many other US companies due to the company having been around since day 1 of computers.
Good posibilities of working internationally.

Cons

To much focus on cutting costs.
International assignments might be beneficial on a personal level but careers and salaries are handled in-country.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The focus have been put so much on 2015 so I see tendencies to forget some of the core values in IBM that valued the employee. Making the exit cost for the high-skilled employees not that high.

    Pros

    Very stable employer in turbulent times. The incredibly wide scope of activities and industries means that there is so much going on, which can lead to all kinds of opportunities.
    Looks good on a resume too :-)
    The matrix management structure and distributed development model means that you can end up working with a great variety of people, and have many different roles.
    Also, IBM has a long and distinguished history of respecting work-life balance.

    Cons

    Big, slow and bureaucratic. Also, you have to use Lotus Notes.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
