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

    Pros

    Great work from home and ability to move around.

    Cons

    Terrible moral, working employees to death to meet their Roadkill 2015 target. The truth is they will meet it by selling off all the properties they aquired when times where good how ever in the process their SW/HW and Services group will crumble due to the lack of people, over worked and under paid. Clients are jumping ship and it can be seen as their revenue remains flat how ever profit is booming. That means SQUEEEEEZE. Enjoy IBM while you can, work it, get experience then jump ship ad go some where that will respect and pay you accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Every quarter you act like a fool and push those people is another quarter you will loose those people. Good like trying to get revenue without any sales people. Think strategically on long term sales goals and large play to grow business.. Squeezing every dollar will leave you up the creek without a paddle

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They do offer a fairly good matching program for 401K plan.

    Cons

    IBM is an American icon technology company that repositioned itself-for survival-as a software, services and outsource company. The cost for this "repositioning" has been high in the way of a brain drain of competent mgrs., sales executives, customer service and general culture. It is the most overrated hi-tech company in the industry that happens to have 12,000 finance employees. There is growth, but only through cutting expenses, not by top-line revenues. They manage their business by spreadsheets while they've acquired best of breed enterprise planning software and consolidation tools. Middle level mgmt is horrendous and constantly changing. Compensation is pitiful for revenue producing individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Switched on Marketing campaigns don't make a company, employees, culture and loyalty do.
