I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexibility and diversity. It's a large company and if you get in the right department, you have a chance to move to different areas.

Cons

Expected more and more to be done with fewer people and moving more jobs offshore. Salaries don't even keep up with inflation any more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It used to be that loyal, dedicated, skilled employees were rewarded and secure but that's no longer the case. IBM doesn't follow their own values - so disappointing to see in what was a great company. More concerned with profits than people.
