I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Huge network, ability to move around within the company. Mostly great people. Predictable culture. Rewarded with promotions for exercising my passion, following my interests. Have to admire a company that knows how to sustain itself for decades.

Cons

Exasperating organizational infighting and agendas are to be expected within this vast company, despite a facade of collaboration. I wish it seemed genuine. Workload increasing too steadily to work on career advancement. Seeing I will have to sell my work-life balance to reach the next level. Fear I'll be politely shuffled out the door in 10 years anyway, for costing too much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes to what's going on among your areas. It might not be beneficial to the company as a whole.

    I worked at IBM (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    there is not mutch good about working for IBM. However, who you work with are good people and there are a lot of very good techs

    Cons

    IBM is the cheapest company you will ever work for. EG if you want a keyboard and mouse at your desk you have to buy your own. the managements highest goal is to keep their bonuses. and they attcheve this by being unethical in how they treat their employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start being ethical in your business practice
