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

    Pros

    IBM is a huge company and because of that there are many opportunities for long term employees to go overseas to China or India which are the only growth ares in IBM. They offer decent salaries after 20 years.

    Cons

    They are working towards a $20 per share earnings target by 2015. That has resulted in very deep, often ill advised cost cutting. There is no incentive to work hard and the bonus salary plans have been gutted to meet the 2015 goal. Employees come last at IBM, don't ever forget it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget who got you where you are.

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

    Pros

    Aggressive software acquisition strategy. Ability to work from home. A great place to start ones career and build a foundation of skills.

    Cons

    Subjective performance reviews. Monthly driven quota objectives versus quarterly. Too few reps make their quota objectives with quota assignment tied back to Wall Street expectations versus reality. Too many layers of top management who add little value. IBM is supposed to be "family friendly" but taking vacation days is not encouraged.
