    I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tech giant with massive resources and really talented people. You work on products that are touched by millions in mission critical areas. For such a big company, it feels very nimble. You can easily reach any employee worldwide through Sametime. It feels like a tight-knit environment, even thought you are 1 or hundreds of thousands. Every manager I have dealt with is awesome. Uber professionalism throughout.

    Cons

    It is a big company. It takes weeks to do some things that would be done in hours in a startup. I wish product development was more streamlined. That similar products were merged or shut down. And that products would not be saddled with every single possible feature.

    Advice to Management

    Every single manager I have dealt with is awesome. So keep picking good people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Big Company (Could be good or bad)
    -Nice people

    Cons

    -Terrible training
    -Nothing to do most of the time with exception of month-ends.
    -Have to work some weekends even when you have about 1 hour of work to do
    -Brutal pay, but HEY you aren't doing **** anyways

    Advice to Management

    -Learn how to train people
    -Increase pay, but provide more work to individuals, many people could take the work of 2 or 3 others and have no problem (save IBM lots of money). I would gladly have twice the work for only 50% more pay.
