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

    Pros

    IBM treats their employees well in most cases. Working here you have access to tons of great resources and the access to really intelligent people.

    Cons

    Felt a little like a worker bee that was expendable. Working as a billable consultant was a little stressful considering you were supposed to always be billing. Do you other work on your time. Many meetings and even more paperwork. Not to mention silly certifications on ethics that were a complete waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employee and treat them as a person. Not a drone.

    "Fair. Expect to work hard, and even if you are a top performer, rewards are few."

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

    Pros

    Core development areas are stable. Very Client focused. Well run business. ie. I'm not expecting them to go bankrupt.

    Cons

    Ever shifting work structure from US to AP. In engineering, performance is not rewarded, even high performers get minimal monetary reward.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to not lose your core talent as you shift work load to AP. Growth may be in AP, but do not lose focus of the customer base that got IBM here.
