    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can be well paid. There can be opportunities to move and expand experience.
    It is very collegial, and they do take good care of people especially in an emergency or crisis.
    The company does do a very good job of communicating with people the state of the business, current issues and plans.

    Cons

    The culture is all embracing ad overwhelming. It is fundamentally run by Finance, with sales people being revered. Working internally as I did is neither appreciated or valued. I worked for a global team for years yet it never met in person due to a complete ban on travel expense for internal people. In 8 years I never did any training, never met any clients, never was able to go to any trade shows (even IBM run ones). There are no doubt some excellent managers and leaders though unfortunately I never worked for any. A lot of the people there joined as graduates and have only ever worked for IBM - these people occupy most if not all of the senior roles.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much point giving advice to management - the firm has been around 100 years and is very set in its ways, especially on how it manages and motivates people.
