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

Pros

Overseas transfer opportunities - opportunity to do work that matters - prestige of company gets meetings with client decision makers - solution portfolio is vast

Cons

Salary decisions are based on averages - many are underpaid vs industry for similar work - quarterly pressure for results is dialed up - administrivia and internal bureaucracy is over the top - CEO is fantastic, though the surrounding SVPs are less so

    Pros

    IBM offers their employees great benefits including an employee stock purchase program. I worked for the company for 12 years and would still be there today if possible.

    Cons

    Because IBM is a global company, they participate in a lot of outsourcing to other countries. My position was moved to Manilla and I was tasked with training 6 people how to perform my job before I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your loyal employees.
