I worked at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

IBM is a stable company to work for. It's not going anywhere, and it's not going to get bought out. You can even transfer between different product teams, although a lot will depend upon the state of business and how good your manager is. IBM tries to solve big problems and you'll encounter a lot of smart people trying to solve complex problems. It's a good company to work for so you can learn from other employees, and usually they're more than willing to help.

Cons

I felt valued as an employee by my manager and my peers. However, at the corporate level, I felt very unappreciated as an employee, e.g. getting rid of the water cooler to save money. IBM's current strategy is acquiring companies and thereby customers to grow. Organic growth is not happening. Now, the focus is about saving money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care about your employees as real people. It's not just the first-level manager's job. It's every executives' job, all the way up to the CEO.

    Pros

    IBM is very successful and manages the business well. Salary and benefits are good (even great).

    Cons

    IBM manages the business very closely financially, which translates to reducing the workforce in reaction to quarterly sales and profits.
