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

    Pros

    Work from home options.
    Good vacation and sick time policies.
    Good medical for single employees.
    Coworkers are very capable and willing to help.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunity.
    Inadequate product funding.
    Dwindling local workforce..
    Lack of innovation opportunity.
    Products are in continuing maintenance mode.
    IBM prefers to buy companies with new technology rather develop it themselves.
    Heavy on process rather than innovation and improvement.
    Large families can pay more than $13,000 in premiums for health insurance.
    Constant reduction in employee benefits.
    Constant downsizing.
    Responsibilities pile up due to attrition with no backfill.
    Employees are inefficient due to their broad scope of responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Show the same passion in your products as your developers do.
    Invest in the future of your products or make the hard decisions to discontinue them.
    Forcing products to limp along for years without any innovation creates a dead-end environment.
    Invest in the skill growth of your employees.
    Support meaningful adoption of new technologies into your product lines rather than doing the minimum effort.
    Have ownership and vision for the future of every product in the portfolio rather than putting it all on developers to create a bucket of ideas and then trimming until the result adds very little in customer value.
    Focus on long term strength rather than crippling product teams and demoralizing employees to artificially bolster today's stock price.
