    -Leadership opportunities for college hires
    -Flexible working hours and locations

    Cons

    -IBM politics often times gets in the way of progress and innovation.
    -Recent changes in benefits (401K, Thanks Award, etc)
    -Expect late night and early morning meetings if working with international counter parts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Stop cutting benefits and allocate some real budgets for recruiting and retention - we as a company are losing talents due the recent actions called by the upper management.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than a 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.
