    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.

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

    Pros

    Access to resources and technology. World class technical capabilities. Ability to reinvent itself. Ability to chase and define new markets. Respect of others.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy at its finest. Slow to make decision. Processes for the sake of processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the non performance based layoffs. Stop with layoffs period. There is a great lack of trust and commitment to the corporation because of how these are implemented.
