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

Pros

For people in my function, we enjoy good work-life balance and flexibility.
In general, leaders (especially home-grown) are open to feedback and suggestions.
Many career opportunities due to the size of the company.
Company culture is great and values are emphasized.

Cons

Rapid growth is causing the company to get external hires for senior positions. Some are not being trained properly in terms of the culture and bring bad habits from their other companies. Promotions from within need to be emphasized.

Advice to Management

Cultivate current employees and try as much as possible to keep senior positions for those who match the culture of the company.
