I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Many different projects and opportunities to move around.
Many experts in different area, from whom help is often given freely.
Flexible work hours.

Cons

Ratings/reviews seem to make it necessary to compete with co-workers, with emphasis on visibility to management.
Trend seems to be moving jobs overseas, reducing US workforce. Cuts are often across the board, so many very good employees being let go.
Most projects end up being teams in multiple locations around the world, making collaboration difficult to match up work schedules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to collaboration of employees, and not just "leadership by presentations".

    Good overall but times have changed.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a long history, reputation (the name speaks for itself), great product, global, benefits, skies the limit for above/beyond contributors, resources and a great talent pool!

    Cons

    It's a big company therefore you'll have to contribute above and beyond to be recognized or to survive. Employees are just employees. Concentrate at what matters to the company not what you think matters. However, these are prevelant in most companies today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the foundations why IBM was a great place to have a career, not just a job. Make IBM the leader in all aspects not just inline with the competition.
