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

    Pros

    Talented people!!! I get to work with the most dedicated people. These people willing to help you to be successful with your career. culture is on the "Traditional/Conversative" side, but I am not complaining!

    Cons

    With 6 years, I am still considered a newbie. Senior management is conservative with promotion and delegating! Process and procedures are always in the way of "forward" progress.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on R&D as it's our future!!!

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

    Pros

    Easy on-boarding, lot's of self autonomy, strong compensation packages, great benefits, liberal vacation policy

    Cons

    Too many required conference calls, slim resources through management for training, unrealistic annual goals, too many re-orgs and down-sizings only to re-hire again. Management is aloof and doesn't engage with reports, hard to get internal information, have to rely on the rumor mill. IBM thinks when you walk in the client's door for the first time the sale is 50% over on name recognition. Discontinuing products without fair warning to sales team.

    Advice to Management

    Clean some of the old guard who aren't producing but work the system to stay employed. Move them to challenging positions so they can't snooze on the job. Develop a better employee review process beyond 1 person's view. Ease travel restrictions for professionals, too much accounting time in expense reports. Get better control of HELP desk for communication equipment issues.
