I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very stable employer in turbulent times. The incredibly wide scope of activities and industries means that there is so much going on, which can lead to all kinds of opportunities.
Looks good on a resume too :-)
The matrix management structure and distributed development model means that you can end up working with a great variety of people, and have many different roles.
Also, IBM has a long and distinguished history of respecting work-life balance.

Cons

Big, slow and bureaucratic. Also, you have to use Lotus Notes.....

Advice to Management

Empower your people more.
