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

Pros

Working form home.
Flexible hours if you work from home.

Cons

70% of this company is now in India.
IBM buys companies with no clue what their products are. They lay everyone off 6 months after you help them integrate onto IBM.
Internal IBM programs have no manuals and no tech support.
Help Desk is in India where no one speaks English. Simple tasks take weeks to complete.
IBM does not care about professional development.
Upper management does not even get to speak to developers, ever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being greedy and value your employees more.

    Pros

    Great work culture. Good benefits with support for overall career and personality development. Very open about contacting anyone working within IBM anywhere in the world with supporting technical tools to do the same.

    Cons

    It is a big big company and what you are working on could be similar to someone else's work in IBM and you won't even realize it.
