    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Diverse Career Opportunities& many of them -Reputable company, enormous portfolio -OK pay, OK benefits, Fantastic Flexibility -Acquiring companies constantly

    Cons

    -Management controls you like puppets. You do not necessarily own your own internal path -Reputable yes, but that reputation isn't always good or improving -OK pay, OK benefits, Flexibility fading -Enormous challenge in IBM being a sum of its parts. Collective deal handling difficult. -Team not really there. Everyone paid on their own part - difficult to control -LOTS of uncertainty. More people leaving or forced to leave than coming -Culture leaves much to be desired

    Advice to Management

    While it used to be that you had to earn your stripes to earn a role at IBM, now, go start at IBM, stay for 3 years and leave.
