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

Pros

quality people, benefits, customers, some solutions/products

Cons

weak management (too much management), competing teams and goals, competing non-integrated products and offerings

Advice to ManagementAdvice

quick shooting the workers and weed out the management. Structure goals that complement each other among teams instead of competing goals that ultimately confuse the customer.

    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.
