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

Pros

Profitable company
Sets long term strategy that delivers profitable value
Strategy is usually dead on, very few mis-steps from business execution
Shedding low-value, low margin businesses, investing in high value, high profit segments

Cons

Big company - sometimes difficult to work thru various layers of mgmt. (But if you have the right mentor, an IBM'r can help you figure out the best path)
If you don't stay close to the customer's viewpoint, can become part of the bottleneck problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing a great job on strategy and direction, so IBM'rs can go execute and deliver results for our customers and shareholders.

    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.

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