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

Pros

There is no Pros to being a US-based IBM employee.

Cons

No valid career plans, no raises, no emphasis on customers. Employees are left hanging in front of customers with no management support. The goal is to eliminate all US jobs, and to make it as uncomfortable as possible for US employees.

Advice to Management

Start concentrating and listening to customers instead of always concentrating on internal IBM affairs.

    Pros

    The company is big.
    There are many different opportunities.
    If you are aggressive, you can shine.
    If you want to relax, there are such positions for you.

    Cons

    The company is big.
    There are many process that you may not like.
    There are all different kinds of managers.
    If you are lucky to work for one you like, it is good. But there are many that may disappoint you.
    However, the company is big, so you can move around easily.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people, breadth of opportunity to develop your skills and build a resume
    Decent benefits
    Wonderful 401k match

    Cons

    Too many managers not really selling but reporting-up
    Pay compared to competition is really low for enterprise sales
    Lack of focus on client success
    Comp plans don't really align well with what you do

    Advice to Management

    "Road-kill 2015" is not about the client or the employee - too bad. ELAs are purely financial transactions and a book keeping shell game...make them about driving business and IT value for customers. Better develop a true SaaS strategy and solutions as you guys are going to lose enterprise business customers fast!
