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

    Pros

    Opportunities to move around within a global organization (they actively encourage techical staff to consider moving to China, India or Africa).

    They encourage patent invention and intellictual IP

    Cons

    They have lost their way. Senior management encourages a message of "client first". Yet they have slashed staffing to WAY beyond the ability to create, deliver, market and train products of quality to their customers. Research and engineering employees who truly believe in doing a great job no longer have the ability to do so.

    IBM is aggressively moving towards cloud/big data technologies, but are trying to do so with little investment.

    Do more with less is fine.. and sometimes a reality. But do more with less for years, and less benefits and no work-life balance is not sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IBM employees want to do the right thing. They are hard working, bright individuals with integrity and loyalty to their jobs. The breaking point has been reached. Slash and burn has taken too great a toll on products (that make money despite IBM) and the employees who work on them. Invest in your people. Give them the ability to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Work-life flexibility; endless opportunities for career development or exploration.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't competitive for those in New York

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't drive out your best people by increasing workload without increasing pay or at least maintaining perks.
