I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Telecommuting is available, its a paycheck

Cons

-Employee morale is very low
-Very small raises, none in recent years
-No training whatsoever
-Threat of layoffs, almost all jobs in my division have been offshored
-Constant changes in policy to cut every last penny. Im sure soon we will have to buy our own laptops.
-Everyone has a "Not my problem" attitude, very adversarial environment
-Too much red tape and endless unnecessary conference calls
-Review process is completely broken and ratings are usually based on whether or not you are in your managers inner circle
-Top performers are either leaving or giving up and just collecting a paycheck waiting to be laid off.
-Gloomy depressing atmosphere.
-Finally, you will never get even a hint that anything you do is appreciated.

Advice to Management

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    was able to survive 30 yrs. and when I went there I knew I had been blessed to work for the best company in these United States.

    Cons

    greedy upper management, no longer can they cling on to respect for the individual. nothing is good enough, and you can work 24 / 7 and sometimes need to to survive. pay bonues on company performance are now a joke or don't exist and you can go years without a salary increase but you will get new and more job resposibilties. they continue to raise the bar and top mgmt. gets all the money and perks.

    Advice to Management

    reduce stress, listen to your people, go back to rewards and awards, and stop telling a person when you hit the MID range of your salary grade you're at 100% of pay.
