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

Pros

Great company with tremendous people and resources. Benefits and compensation packages are very strong. Extensive job options allow for upward mobility. Strong in the local community.

Cons

Large and slow at times. Many of the tools and databases are outdated, ironic for the world's premier information technology corporation. Workload expectations can be high.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, working from home (though recently that's being cut)
    It's a job (?)

    Cons

    Too many to mention:
    - company is entirely finance driven
    - no perks to working here
    - relatively miserable pay and bonuses
    - no stock options for a long time now
    - too much management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is completely disjoint from employees and doesn't give a hoot about them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    - large company
    - decent benefits (although they take benefits away every year and costs are escalating. At least in U.S.)
    - Work from home options

    Cons

    - A lot of behind the scenes layoffs in U.S. to stay out of news
    - Company measurements pit people against each other instead of working together.
    - VERY silo'd environment
    - Bureaucracy is a nightmare
