Pros

Access to the best of the best, and all with the name of IBM on your resume. IBM has their fingers in almost every aspect of life, and working for this company opens up opportunities beyond those available with other employers.

Cons

You have to learn to roll with the punches. Globalization and cost factoring are an every day reality that even IBM is susceptible to. If you're expecting to get a good raise or a fair bonus, then think again, because that won't happen here. Your real compensation is working on the projects and with the people, and using that to further your carreer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your top talent by what they do, not just who they are. Reward your rank-and-file people appropriately, and remember that the size of the reward is sometimes much more significant than the fact that they're getting one in the first place.

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

    Pros

    IBM is a big company with many avenues to progress and manke a big impact. Few other companies offer the variety of work and colleagues that IBM does

    Cons

    The con of working in a large company is the difficulty in making the elephant dance. In many places IBM is a big government bureaucracy so getting things done can be hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a slightly more bottom up responsibility architecture
