I worked at IBM full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- you can learn a lot of new technologies and software solutions
- people are very friendly and helpful
- there are bunch of online programming courses available for free

Cons

- you are required to pass a lot of useless online courses ones you get hired which is just waist of time
- some equipment are pretty old and should be thrown away many years ago

Advice to ManagementAdvice

just be a little bit more sociable. People, sometimes, need to hear from you guys.

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

    Pros

    Mmmmm. Tough question. Let me think. Ah yes. A beautiful site. But that is only because IBM has not found a way of offloading it yet.

    Cons

    Probably the most depressing place I have worked.
    Staff are treading water waiting for the next piece of management stupidity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell them to wake up and smell the coffee but they already know what they are doing.
    The policy to squeeze margins and employees to breaking point is deliberate.
    Eventually you will squeeze the life out of the golden goose.
