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

Pros

As a big company, there are frameworks in place (which are missing from a smaller company) to provide context for creating and sharing information. There's also a diversity of areas to move on to when you're looking for your next position within the company, provided you're not looking to move up.

Cons

Marketing is an undervalued and under-funded area, which is constantly cut whenever the company goes through a downsizing, to the point where it's effectiveness is compromised. There's a move underfoot throughout all disciplines to outsource as many jobs overseas as possible, for cost cutting. Raises and bonuses are a joke during good times and bad.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some very intelligent coworkers...when you can find them
    Large resources and thought leadership...if you know how to navigate the org
    Good work like balance

    Cons

    Too many hands in deals...people get paid when the don't contribute
    They don't pay enough in Client Executive roles
    If you are not a lifer, your chances of coming in and moving up are limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start realizing the economy/job environment if more fast paced and fluid. You can't tell high performers it will take 5 years to reach their next career level.

    Pros

    Name recognition, international company, decent pay

    Cons

    Too many acquired companies make up a disjointed corporation with no consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell employees they have a career when all they really have is a job.
