I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The name IBM still carries a lot of weight and can often help get converstaions with clients started. IBM is an ethical company.

Cons

The average work week is 50+ hours. Finding new projects can be difficult with the current IBM tools and changing practice areas is nearly impossible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees the opporutunity (and time) to be forward thinking and give the ability to pursue new ideas instead of only talking about being 'innovative' as an abstract concept.
