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

Pros

Lots of opportunity for growth great foundation

Cons

Lower than average pay, too many average or below average workers allowed to collect a paycheck. It is difficult to manage out underperformers.

Advice to Management

Reward loyaly. Your long term staff is penalized through lower pay, you do not reward commitment and hard work. People with proven track records of success are making 25-30% less than unknown new hires.

    Pros

    "Can do" attitude of teaming. If you desire to work for a large corporation, learn formal processes (sometimes more than you like) and frameworks you can take wherever your career path takes you, IBM will definitely give you this structure. It is impressive how big the company is and yet how focused it is in recent years on growth and innovation. They invest lots into R&D and thought leadership.

    Cons

    Maybe not the highest salaries. If you do not want structure, look elsewhere.
