I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

This is an innovative, ethical company with a long history that I was proud to work for. They clearly see where their profits lie and move to leverage those performing products in the market. Conversely, unprofitable products are cut. Great benefits with large salary ranges. Working from home was wonderful and perfect for my situation

Cons

Dealing with what I call the corporate "hoo haw," the processes for getting some goals accomplished are sometimes monumental. I found that by building my network, I could many times work around these roadblocks and achieve the end goal.

    Pros

    Endless army of resources to help you succeed; management is open to listening to opposing views; if you're young, it's a great company to learn from and to possibly be your life long commitment.

    Cons

    Lack of "common sense" decision making; finance driven / managed, too stingy;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the field / line employee.
