I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

very independent work culture. minimal office interaction in your home city; basically you're remote from your home city and travel to your clients. some may view this as a con.

Cons

minimal interaction with managers. excessive paperwork required annually to document annual performance. some may prefer to work independently.

    Pros

    If you're good and have a compelling reason they'll eventually let you work from home (granted all career progression will stop at that point but it's nice to work from home).

    Cons

    They'll work you like a donkey and then pay you peanuts.

    And you quickly learn that even if you're a top performer you shouldn't expect any type of reward or meaningful increase in compensation because it isn't coming.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep top talent you have to actually give them an incentive to stay.

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

    Pros

    IBM seems very generous with the way it handles its employees. Between the benefits package, IBM events, community discounts, essentially unlimited sick leave, and flexible work schedule, it has made for a fantastic starting point for an IT career.

    Cons

    IBM is implementing a new system for technical support, and it is currently going through understandable growing pains. For the most part management still seems to be trying to figure out how to best handle the new system, and many odd decisions are made that often hinder efficiency in favor of process.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to be so afraid of third party software. IBM is really good at many things, but many items in their software portfolio should be scrapped.
