I worked at IBM as an intern (less than a year)

Good compensation
Job security

Cons

Boring
Cookie-cutter projects
Older employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be some stronger unification of IBM employees within the company, so they feel they're part of something important. IBM seemed uninspiring as a larger entity, and just a safe way to spend 9-5.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to gain skills and grow a great career.
    Internal access to lots of resources and a decent mentorship program provide options for personal development.

    Cons

    Sometimes the size of the corp can be daunting.
    Need lot of self motivation to get anything accomplished.
    For essentially an IT organization the internal help desk is strictly a self service model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage finding a buddy or make sure your first line managers are well training in the soft skills
