    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work times, except if you have to work with ibmers overseas you have to use your personal hours, dinner/breakfast time to be on calls with different time zones. No personal time available anymore. Work comes in waves. When it's busy it's really stressful. We are finally starting to hire some new hires and new blood into the company. Still pretty top heavy and hard to move up.

    Cons

    It seems like our budget for anything is smaller and smaller every year when we are reporting record profits. Healthcare benefits aren't great. A lot of out of pocket costs. They are outsourcing a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our management upto 3rd line is doing the best they can.

    Mediocre work experience, with a few individual staff member exceptions, overall poor morale and internal culture.

    Pros

    Company offers wide variety of opportunities for different roles, career paths - IF you can get support of your manager.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities to build interpersonal and team relationship(s) with colleagues and coworkers as most are work from home. Spend lots of time on conference calls with cast of dozens or more. Very slow movement on projects due to "too many cooks," political wrangling and landscape. Difficult to build trust, as many are individual contributors focus on impressing management and rather than focusing on projects that help move the organization forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend TOO much time on internal status updates - which seem to have little impact on results - internal reporting requires extreme amounts of bandwidth for staff members that could be better utilized on other projects. Spend too much time "weighing the pig than actually working to feed the pig."
