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

Pros

Access to a great diversity of technologies. Work from home when not at client locations. Not micro-managed. Ability to move into new roles for career growth. Great matching 401K program and other benefits.

Cons

Sometimes difficult to balance work and life being in pre-sales and the constant drive to get deals to closure.

    Pros

    They're not going to go out of business any time soon. There are some very very smart people there, and they might talk to you once in a while. They have nice buildings, but you won't get to work in one.

    Cons

    They are frickketty *HUGE*. Your project will get lost in the shuffle. The divisions of the company are perpetually in conflict. Your project will get cancelled when executives change, which happens every year or so. They have more bureaucracy and internal processes than the federal government. IBMers often spend years in miserable corners of the company. Pretty much *everyone* there is miserable much of the time though.

    Advice to Management

    Most of you (management) should cease to be management.
