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

    Pros

    Large network.
    Able to work from home for many positions.
    Several discount plans & perks available to all employees
    401k matching

    Cons

    Compensation is "industry" median; you can certainly do better.
    Tends to pigeon-hole people into positions
    Customer focus over employee growth (sometimes will lock employees into contracts which limits any opportunity for advancement).

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at Google's culture; it drives a culture of innovation and community give back.
