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

    Pros

    Big company, so lots of opportunities - if you know the right people.
    Work-from-home policy.
    Can't think of any other pros...

    Cons

    Absurd focus on cutting expenses. Air travel in coach class, regardless of flight time or distance. However, 3rd line managers get booked in business class. How's that for morale?
    Everyone is only waiting for the next layoff to occur, so not much serious work is being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are so far removed from the trenches you have no idea how things are done. I can see IBM going the way of HP: a company sliding into oblivion; it may take more time in IBM's case, but it will get to the bottom one day.
