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

    Pros

    Good project experience and exposure. This is the only good thing about IBM. the project exposure was quite good if you are just starting out. If you already have some experience and have certain expectation of your career path and compensation, do not bother at all. So, get the hell out as soon as you feel you can survive outside this sweatshop in the real world.

    Cons

    Can not believe how incompetent, ignorant and mean many project leads, project managers and managers are. You have to work well over 100 hours a week, you are expected to do yours, and your managers, and your leads' work, and the clients are lied to by management and project leads all the time so you are stuck in the middle trying to implement a non-sense solution for clients

    Advice to Management

    After you drive all your project delivery people in such a sweat shop with 7 days of 12 hour work week after week, at least consider some pay raise and some bonus by year end. Or, if you keep not raising a single penny and keep giving $100 as bonus, at least be honest about it.
