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

    Pros

    Exposure to leading technologies especially as a result of many IBM acquistions.

    Cons

    Delivery quality to customers is suffering badly as managers drive time & cost to the exclusion of technical excellence.

    Moving heavily to off-shore labor and eliminating US technical personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to ensure that the annual performance review process is executed carefully and objectively. There is a tendency to flatten ratings by inflating ratings of mediocre performers and under-rating strong performers.
