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

    Pros

    Ideology on working from home, immediate & extended team has great culture, flexibility of hours based on client need, health care 100% paid for employees, training programs are mandatory and frequent comparatively. If you have the drive to learn on your own, IBM offers plenty of opportunity to learn from some of the best in their fields of expertise

    Cons

    Getting a raise takes an Act of Congress, they will cap your income even if you exceed expectations, sending feedback to management is like talking to a post, much more internal paperwork/processes than I'd ever experienced at 4 other firms (3 large 1 small), too much middle management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your all-stars or they go play elsewhere. If a job offer to someone with a number that they will be paid if they meet/exceed expectations, don't short-change them when they hold up their end of the bargain. Try not to impose internal processes for the sake of filling out paperwork and bean-counting...if the #s are coming in as expected or higher, leave your worker bees alone.
