I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

A degree of flexibility as to working location and hours. Some truly incredible and talented people.

Cons

Too much process, managers that are scared to make a decision, execs that only care about the bottom line and their bonuses, slow as molasses. Big words, big visions but not backed up by any real execution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice, you wouldn't listen when I was there, you won't now.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
