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

    Pros

    Good place to start a career and gain experience. Be prepared to work lots of hours and don't be afraid of accepting new challenges. Flexible hours are great.

    Cons

    IBM has become a company that only cares about stock price and dividends. They no longer have respect for the individual. You have a lot of flexibility, but don't be fooled you will always put in more than they are willing to give back. If your can do your job from home it can be done from ANYWHERE in the world, including "low cost country".

    Advice to Management

    Every job you send off shore increases profit and dividends. It also takes high paying jobs from the US reducing taxes being paid in. Once you were proud to be an American Company, now you are just another disappointment.

    I worked at IBM full-time

    Pros

    There are still lots of smart people at IBM, and the company has enormous resources.

    Cons

    None of the smart people work in upper management. IBM is a company that is run as thouhg the only thing that matters is financial rewards for shareholders and upper management. Customers and employees are little more than an afterthought. Short-term decision making rules EVERYTHING. Employees work long hours with little hope of reward, other than not being on the next layoff list.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and let some competent grown-ups run things.
