    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company offers wide variety of opportunities for different roles, career paths - IF you can get support of your manager.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities to build interpersonal and team relationship(s) with colleagues and coworkers as most are work from home. Spend lots of time on conference calls with cast of dozens or more. Very slow movement on projects due to "too many cooks," political wrangling and landscape. Difficult to build trust, as many are individual contributors focus on impressing management and rather than focusing on projects that help move the organization forward.

    Advice to Management

    Spend TOO much time on internal status updates - which seem to have little impact on results - internal reporting requires extreme amounts of bandwidth for staff members that could be better utilized on other projects. Spend too much time "weighing the pig than actually working to feed the pig."

    I worked at IBM as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, not stuffy corporate atmosphere at all

    Cons

    Outdated resources for employees to do their job effectively

    Advice to Management

    With better infrastructure internally, employees are more effective and can get their work done with less stress and in less time.
