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

Pros

IBM has excellent processes, solid management and excellent work-life balance for employees. IBM has good focus on employees development and offers great training opportunities for employees, if they choose to take them up. As always, career development is up to you, so more work you put in, better results you will get at IBM.

Cons

Processes can mean slower response time sometimes, especially working across international boundaries. It's hard to avoid this for a large corporation, especially since each geography has its own operating company (due to legal and regulatory requirements).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the focus as you have on profit growth - continue to acquire high-margin / high- potential start-ups and IBM will continue to dominate the marketplace.

    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.
