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

    Pros

    World class technology solutions; great, knowledgeable people; learn something every day; stellar reputation in the industry;

    Cons

    Huge & complex company to work for; matrixed orgranization makes it difficult to be quick & responsive to client needs; constant management churn makes it difficult to have clear strategy in place to execute; change is constant which makes it difficult to produce consistent results; top management unable to show revenue growth, but is very focused on EPS metric to make Wall Street happy;

    Advice to Management

    Have a 5 year plan for the company to grow and execute on it, instead of constantly changing the product/solution mix which results in revenues going down every year (quarter). Have a long term vision/strategy that is built around the factors described in the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins and execute on that with a core management team that stays in place for 5 to 10 years.

    Pros

    You have the ability to work with people all around the world and learn so much. You will have access to test and try all of the cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    You have to manage your career. I found managers who are willing to help. However with IBM going mostly mobile in the US. It is hard to keep up these relationships. Being part of a global team was fun but still need to have the office experience.
