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

Pros

Great learning ground...if you can unearth the offerings. Varied projects, self determination.

Cons

Travel can be an issue. Certain groups are not cohesive in strategy. It's who you know that determines success and many languish in bands without promotions or increases for years. Can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

Many good consultants and managers lost due to myopic focus on bottom line and not investments in people.

    Pros

    As a major multinational company with many lines of business, you can easily move from job to job within IBM and develop a rewarding career.

    Cons

    Being very large, IBM can sometimes be frustrating because it takes a lot to break the mold.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that you are saving money by hiring off shore. It's hurting your capacity, capabilities, and quality.

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

    Pros

    People are great, well, almost everyone. Typical corporate world. Some people are there to help, some are there just to help themselves. I learned a lot from the senior folks, some newcomers had the "I know more than you" attitude.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't seem to know whats happening on the ground. Once you get to a 4th line manager, it's all about numbers, not quality.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the 12 levels of managers
