    Current Employee - Advisory Software Engineer in Rochester, MN

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

    Pros

    Been here 14 years, learned a lot about various programming languages and technology.

    Able to spend half or more time working from home which is very nice. Certainly this may vary for others depending on your manager and job role.

    Stock options were very nice (while they lasted.)

    Cons

    Like most big companies like this, you are a resource that could be let go at any time.

    Any programming you may do outside of IBM still belongs to IBM legally because of the agreement you sign when hired..

    Can get competitive and stressful at times.

    There are legal rules/guidelines that are ridiculous and in conflict with each other: things like MySQL, Wine and Citrix Receiver being banned for internal use by some internal areas within IBM but used freely by others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring more about employees than stock holders and you will be rewarded.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Great place for women to work in a sense, A mother can leave to take her kids to dr apt etc or stay home with them if they are sick or work from home anytime you don't need to be on site.

    Cons

    Not so open to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible and open to change.
