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 Management

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.

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    I won't say that there aren't pros to working at IBM (it's 100 times better than being unemployed). Working at IBM is really OK, but unremarkable.

    Cons

    Antiquated call tracking software that they're too cheap to replace. Internal Websites are not easy to navigate. Company has a self-congratulatory attitude. Lots of irrelevant corporate junk mail.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think management is really interested in anyone's opinion.
