    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, breadth of opportunity to develop your skills and build a resume Decent benefits Wonderful 401k match

    Cons

    Too many managers not really selling but reporting-up Pay compared to competition is really low for enterprise sales Lack of focus on client success Comp plans don't really align well with what you do

    Advice to Management

    "Road-kill 2015" is not about the client or the employee - too bad. ELAs are purely financial transactions and a book keeping shell game...make them about driving business and IT value for customers. Better develop a true SaaS strategy and solutions as you guys are going to lose enterprise business customers fast!

    I have been working at IBM (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competative pay. Remote/WFH capabilities a definite plus. Great Intern bonus oppurtunities like lunches, tours, and dinners.

    Cons

    You are treated like a piece of hardware. Using your ID# you are even refered to as hardware. Very impersonal. All meetings were teleconferences so I never met 95% of the people that I worked with on a day to day basis. Outsourced employees are integrated into every level of the business process, even if the language capabilites are not 100% on par for efficint work streams.

    Advice to Management

    Insert some shreds of personality into the manotony of day to day work. The company went out of their way to make the experience around work more personable like adding a minigolf course, yet the overall environment still felt like I was a Business Machine.
