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

Pros

At the time I worked there, management was very open about communicating what was going on with the company, providing access to worldwide job listings, etc. I think I was happiest when the IT people came, gave us all laptops, and told us to go work from home.

Cons

As with all other mega-corporations, it can sometimes be hard to make personal contact with others, especially if you're working from home, or working remotely.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Steady work; good teamwork, a paycheck.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, and no pay for shift differential, working 12 hours shifts.
    No training.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your people, learn what it is they actually do before you roll out procedure changes which are destined to fail.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to cut your teeth in IT, unlimited education if you seek it out, good place to network, good name for resume. Good benefits(vacation, health, work-life) for young to mid-career professionals

    Cons

    Top Mgmt and lower mgmt are off track w/ each other. Say they promote from within but have hired a lot of outside professionals. Once Inside Sales, hard to move to other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Plan ahead for issues like head count and quota growth, don't get half-way into it and then change it up.
