I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Lots of autonomy
Bring your own device
Amazing culture and opportunities to learn
Supportive management and fair treatment
Competitive pay and decent benefits

Cons

Only 3 weeks of vacation to start
Benefits could be better, they are average
A decent amount of big company bureaucracy
You have to use Lotus Notes

Advice to Management

There are two things that IBM could do to improve in my opinion - 1) provide a more open environment that did not force everyone to use Lotus Notes...it is reviled among many in the organization (except those that have never used another tool for email)...this does not have to mean Outlook (which is worse), just allow people to use whatever POP3/IMAP email client they want to use, and 2) improve the perks just a little bit versus competing high tech companies...some sites don't even have free coffee any more, let alone free soda or food, maybe provide a little better vacation package for US employees (4 weeks instead of 3) and slightly more coverage on health care...

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good life balance. If you are in the "right place" great working conditions

    Cons

    Upper Management not in touch with low level employees - If you are in the wrong location - short career with IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Give more attention to the product output (or service) and less on the bottom line - make employees feel safe.
