I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible work life balance, most positions can work from home at least some of the time
Lots of opportunities, if you want to change careers, you can do so without leaving the company.

Cons

Currently, lots of budget restrictions, hiring freezes. Lots of good programs and intentions, so long as earnings per share are met, if the company is not doing well then promises to employees are quickly forgotten. Hardware division is a sinking ship, software and services are where to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop focusing on earnings per share, also to much short sighted decisions that seem to be knee jerk reactions to earnings. Furloughs damage the company's brand to potential future talent.
