I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

IBM is the traditional big company, but it embraces new ideas. IBM does so much that you can work on almost anything and still work at IBM. There are also external perks like discounts for rental cars, celular phone plans, and broadband internet.

Cons

The focus is big metrics as opposed to overall holistic information quality. This could result in lots of data rather than information. Just search for a product on the IBM web site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on technical expertise rather than some of the exposure politics for technical band 9 types.

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

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities. Unlimited resources. Travel to see the world. High performers are valued. Good benefits and competitive pay. More location flexibility than any other company I have ever experienced.

    Cons

    Promotion process is needlessly complex and time-intensive. Paper burden is high in general for most administrative manners. Tech support is brutally cost-efficient. Expect long hours, but not needlessly so.

    they don't pay 401k anymore until the end of the year, so if they lay you off or you leave, you don't get a penny
    low salary
