I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Less pressure, More comfort . Though it depends on a team as well but 90% of the people in IBM have a tension free life.

Cons

Learning is limited due to lot of maintenance project . You have to find your own way and lead yourself in the right path to establish a successful carrier.

Advice to Management

Don't relax and keep looking for good work . Good luck :)

    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
