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

Pros

Good Benefits, good life balance. If you are in the "right place" great working conditions

Cons

Upper Management not in touch with low level employees - If you are in the wrong location - short career with IBM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more attention to the product output (or service) and less on the bottom line - make employees feel safe.

    Pros

    Worklife Balance is fantastic. Compensation is great if you are a high achiever.

    Cons

    Office (when you do go in, once a month) is a cubicle farm with no tea, coffee or anything. As with any big corporate if you get stuck under average middle management then there's no hope in a promotion anytime soon as they don't fire anyone.
    Culture is decidedly average, being young and single there's a strong lack of team activities (very little social functions or activities as company refuses to fund them).

    Pros

    A fair amount of talent, lots of opportunities to improve or create new skills, most managers are competent and seeking to match your talents to specific projects

    Cons

    IBM is huge and that can create some issues internally, sometimes different business units compete with other IBM business units

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work to define business and sales roles better to avoid internal competition for resources for similar projects
