    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experiences with incredible potential. Few companies are poised to accomplish the things that they can do and they have a talent base capable of performing at the highest level

    Cons

    Large company is initially a bit daunting to navigate, but like any company, networking is key to success. Make connections quickly with those like you for the best experience.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to learn and work with (peers)

    Cons

    Little pay and pay scale is not based on merit. You could be doing a job that is complex and time consuming and the guy across the hall watching movies gets paid the same amount. What a joke!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your talent! Require managers to actually understand the roles they are responsible for. Not just take care of the HR responsibilities.
