    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of variety. Some really sharp people. Exposure across technology industry. Well-recognized and respected name.

    Cons

    Pay is on the low side. Tons of bureaucracy. Too many conference calls, especially in marketing. Too much tracking and scrutiny in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of some of the very talented, young people coming into the company and really develop them. Too many people who have been kicking around there for 20-30 years playing their political cards right and taking up leadership spots that should go to more talented people.
