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

    Pros

    IBM still has many great skills and talents, particularly in the Research division. The Watson technology certainly proved that point in winning the Jeopardy challenge.

    Cons

    Crushing workloads brought on my constant "do more with less" from execs; no raises for years; managers only looking out for themselves; inability for employees to ever attend conferences to maintain skills; lack of reimbursement for cable line for work at home employees --- such petty expenses that "your father's IBM" would ever have dreamed of.
