I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

Pros

work from home whenever you need to
flexible hours (10 to 6, etc)
lots of vacation

Cons

Horrible culture. Lots of politics. Hard to learn things that actually matter outside of IBM. Lotus Notes is the worst email software ever designed. Lenovos suck too. Compensation is below industry norm. Everybody is "Blue washed". Lots of people who are not qualified for their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let us use open source technology. Stop making crappy software like Lotus notes. Hire from top engineering schools like Stanford and start compensating more.

    Pros

    If you're an executive, job security, salary and bonuses to earn you a personal fortune.

    Cons

    If you aren't an executive, work like a slave for no pay raise until they lay you off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the PBC system so ratings mean something, treat your employees like more than a commodity, share in the spoils.
