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

Pros

Working at IBM is like a warm blanket. It feels good and you are sure it is cold outside. The people are great, the environment is ok and the projects are incredible.

Cons

There is a 20 word minimum and I would like to put Bureaucracy 20 times. It is a massive company that tries to make one size fits all policies which gets in the way of recognition for some.

Advice to Management

Let managers manage or just transparently use an algorithm.Trying to explain why things happen is impossible.
