    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training/resources, global travel, old recognized brand on resume (though for technical people, the brand is becoming toxic to have on resume)

    Cons

    little respect for technical talent, serious money only starts at DE level or director+. top heavy: too many directors, vps and DEs, who aren't technical and are seriously out of touch with the dynamics of the tech market promotions are political, smart people sidelined and credit for their work taken by directors and DEs.

    Advice to Management

    take a cue from microsoft and start trimming the fat at the top, else watch your market get gobbled up by the likes of google & amazon in the coming years
