    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Money. If you are out to do nothing but make money this is the job for you, otherwise go somewhere else. If you are looking to make a difference or do something epic, this is not for you.

    Cons

    Long Hours. Unfair review process. Poor career growth. Short on staff. Horrible business practice. Employees are required to work a 44 hour work week, coincidentally works out so that you only wind up with 1 day off a year IF you are able to take vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a little, gain alot... There are no incentives to be a good employee. Practice what you preach - everything I heard was fluff from management, nothing ever comes to fruition when it comes to taking care of employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
