    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My coworkers were nice and helpful. The job was not too stressful. The facilities were pleasant and quiet.

    Cons

    My projects were not interesting. The team suffers from knowledge siloing; W3 is large and difficult to navigate. Project managers were expected to maintain wikis to help management and teammates assess progress on projects, which was time-consuming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintaining wikis is burdensome. New employees need better documentation to get started.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Doesn't matter how frequently your interests keep changing, you will always find something interesting to do within IBM - consulting, software, hardware, sales, marketing, et al.
    - Allows working remotely. Amazing work-life balance.
    - Easy to move between geographies(domestically and internationally)

    Cons

    - As with any big company, the amount of bureaucracy tends to be a lot more.
    - Compensation good, but, within consulting, not as good as some of its competitors.
