Positive Outlook

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

* Flexible working. * Average pay. * Great opportunities for women, minorities, disabled. * Potential to work on significant projects. * Good work life balance. * The people are often great, you can almost rely on anyone in the organisation to be helpful.

Cons

* Morale rock-bottom. * Project management often very poor. Project badly run, technically compromised through lack of planning and arbitrary dates. * No training, except from fellow employees. * Sometimes awful work-life balance. Can depend. * Company PBC process for rating employees is demoralising, and gears up employees to play the game and rather than excelling at their day job.

Advice to Management

Take software engineering seriously - it is what software group should be about.
