    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for and you can succeed if you mange your career wisely. If you love learning and perform well this is the place to be.

    Cons

    This is a very demanding work place and success comes at a cost. Compensation doesn't necessarily matches your performance, therefore you need to prove yourself, watch the compensation market and request your management to match it, or move on, if proper compensation is important to you, before it affects your motivation.

    Advice to Management

    Matching compensation to performance is important motivational factor.
