    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work at home is a about the only plus I can think of. Benefits are sub-par.

    Cons

    Never ending work flow, expect to put in 10-12 hours a day. Very little room for advancement, most moves blocked because of job cuts and off-shoring.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and forthright about the future. Everything can't really be a secret can it?

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

    Pros

    Great people work for IBM. Unfortunately, not very many of them work in management.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of hoops to jump through for no particular reason. Sales organization is very political (not unusual, but stressful nonetheless). Commissions for sales don't always go to the people who made the sale happen. In services, the travel is never-ending and the hours are long.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take all the money for yourselves.
