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

Pros

Lots of flexibility to work in a variety of capacities with a variety of technologies. I could imagine staying at IBM forever and not getting bored.

Cons

Nearly exclusive focus on shareholder value at the expense of employee morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on the longevity of this 100+ year old company, than on short term stock performance.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company that gives you the freedom to do your job the way you want to. Great for those with an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    Sometimes the environment can be rather political. As with most positions, it's always important to have a strong internal network.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    IBM has some of the smartest people you will ever work with, who overwhemingly embrace a common value system.

    Cons

    Relentless cost cutting presents challenges and opportunities in traditional markets (North America and Western Europe) are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While employees are a cost to be managed, they are also an asset to invest in. Try to strike the balance more on the investment side.
