I worked at IBM full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Really experienced engineers who may die soon, thus promotion opportunities!

Cons

The same engineers have worked on the same projects for a dozen years or more

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay actual competitive salaries, not what the computer told you was close to industry standard.

    Pros

    You get a vast number of opportunities and choices regarding the type of work that you do. You also are part of a truly global family, which is a privilege and a huge learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Because of its size, it is a little bit like "working for the post office". You are often so separated from the end-result of your efforts that you often have to search for the meaning of your day-to-day activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spinning wheels and concentrate on business-driven activities. An overhaul of the top tiers of executives would be a very healthy thing.
