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

    Pros

    The benefits are really nice and the people who do work locally are all very bright and dedicated.

    Cons

    I worked for a company that was acquired by IBM. While IBM has a lot of talented people working for it, it quickly became apparent that as a highly paid engineer at IBM you are considered a liability. We were actively interviewing engineers in India and Singapore to replace us and we told to expect yearly layoffs. They delivered on that promise. To say the mood was sour is an understatement. The worst part is the quality of our products suffered greatly and eventually there will be no one in the U.S. who actually knows how the software works.

    Advice to Management

    Actually try and appreciate talent in the U.S. and don't see outsourcing as a panacea that solves all of their problems.

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

    Pros

    At the time I worked for them, they allowed telecommuting, they no longer do that.

    Cons

    They have done too much outsourcing and become way to large and are no longer dynamic, trying to get anything done is almost impossible. Trying to get training, any suggestions to the right folks, is just not a possibility. It is unfortunate as this used to be a bleeding edge company and now lives off of its former reputation.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost your edge as a company, you need to retool
