    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    high caliber of talent, great training, strong leadership

    Cons

    I've observed a steady erosion of founding values that made IBM great -- most notably respect for the individual (not the same as full employment)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to the basics -- dare to be great by standing out from the pack in favor of your employees

    I have been working at IBM full-time for 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.
