    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Pretty much allowed to be yourself - good autonomy
    Reasonably varied work (sometimes)
    Can be interesting if all your ducks fall into line and you have a good team working on a good project

    Cons

    Huge administrative overhead
    Lots of incompetent people
    Perverse incentives created by poorly thought out performance metrics
    Feel like an employee ID number, not like a person
    Too much bidding for work that we want to win, not that we can do

    Advice to Management

    Looking up there is little to inspire me

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good internal policies, brand recognition, reasonable pension, okay salary, medium benefits

    Cons

    Company is changing and it's loosing many reward programs and recognition is drastically decreasing at a policy level.
    Too much depends on if your manager likes you... not about what you do and what you bring to the game.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees regularly. Encourage them with words since there is no more bonuses and extras. If IBM doesn't make people start feeling good about working there again they will see people leave. There is more to a company than how much it pays and it's flexibility. Happy employees stay.
