I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good product offering and customers usually want to hear from you. Working from home is becoming pretty standard for most jobs.

Cons

This is a huge company and the disconnect between upper management and everyone else is impressive at times. I think I'd have a better chance of seeing the Pope in person than our CEO. Big changes (base pay reductions, org changes) can be pushed down in an arbitrary fashion with sometimes little rationale. Even managers 3 or 4 levels up don't seem to know what is going on at times. Politics is just as important as the quality of your work, so know that going in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to meet with employees occasionally. Attend more big customer or internal conferences just so people know you are a real people.
