I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I've had success with pay as a contractor, the experience is really good and the company name on your resume is great.

Cons

Work/life balance is certainly swayed toward work. IBM's "lean" service model leaves much to be desired, we constantly run undermanned and the customers would be much happier with dedicated people as compared to a team of people who can work on any customer account.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company as a whole would do well to make an effort to keep its good employees.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, "safe" place to get started on a new career path. Good lifestyle type place if you are OK with OK money.

    Cons

    Compensation significantly under market rates. Lots of territory changes and new managers that can be less than competent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain top talent (not clear to me that you do), especially in competitive geographies like the Bay Area, you should start working on competitive compensation packages.
