    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    broad resources to leverage for any assignment , reasonable pay, benefits historically excellent

    Cons

    benefits slowly going down the drain, constant US resource actions leading to extremely overworked people left (now you have to be billable at least 125-145% of the time just to be considered "average") extremely unfair rewards system (advertise that they "reward performance" but reality is, rewards are extremely limited so most who "perform" are definitely NOT rewarded due to the inadequate forced curve. Innovation is possible at IBM, but definitely an uphill battle. Most business units are purely interested in staffing their opps and nothing more--you will have to fight LONG and HARD to get anything new seriously considered--but, it IS possible at least.

    Advice to Management

    Your manaical focus on your shareholders is ruining this company--slowly, but surely. There's no advice I can really give, because you aren't interested in anything else, despite what you tell clients IBM is all about. It's a shame to watch this historically great American company sinking with respect to delivering real value to customers.
