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

    Pros

    World-class benefits include excellent health insurance coverage, and dollar-for-dollar matching up to 6% on your 401k.

    There are myriad career growth opportunities, with strong encouragement to increase and broaden your skills. Example, Ginni Rometty's challenge for employees to devote 40 hours to self-directed personal development.

    If you live to work, you can really go far in the company.

    Cons

    Salary tends to be lower relative to other companies, and raises are small. The best way to get a raise is to go to another company.

    While there are many career paths, those opportunities, your direct manager plays a significant role in making those options a possibility. Additionally, much of that personal development must be done on your own time.

    The "relative contribution" method used for annual reviews leaves employees in the dark about where they stand.

    Pros

    IBM tries to take care of the top performers and give you an opportunity to move around and try different roles like technical, management, sales, services.
    Overall I enjoy working here

    Cons

    As you would expect from a company this size, bureaucracy runs rampant and sometimes takes too long to get into new markets. Lots of people who spend a lot of time creating paper work of no value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
