I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Home-based employees, great benefits, top-notch ethics, easily accessible management, decent work-life balance, unlimited training and learning opportunities. Change is a constant - I put this as a "Pro" because IBM tends to anticipate and drive many market segments.

Cons

Complexity drives the downsides: too many account managers with different agendas; corporate processes and matrix structure can be overwhelming, especially for new employees. Rigidity, which is needed for such a large company, often ties hands of management when it needs to be more nimble, such as with employee retention or in highly competitive sales cycle situations. Self-service culture. Compensation is neither worse nor better than industry average.
