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

    Pros

    Interesting technology, get to meet with and work with some great people. Company well respected in the market

    Cons

    Terrible HR processes - no interest in employees welfare, you are really just a number, education is based on skills you will never need but 'look good' to management, pay rises don't exist, everybody wants to be a manager, no 'team' any more, employees taught to compete with each other like gladiators - only one winner, do what you can to get up the ladder etc..... Actually, not a nice place to be. 15 years ago it was a different place and people enjoyed working there!,,

    Advice to Management

    Loose at least one layer of lower management, start to 'manage' instead to just bean count, understand your customers instead of just reading somebody else's marketing presentations, stop sending mass mails about 'working harder', 'you are not working hard enough', 'we had a great quarter but you must do better' etc. Let your people know that they are doing a good job, listen to them - we do have names!!!

    Pros

    Good work culture, flexibility and good projects for learning and applying your thoughts. If you are capable you can get good opportunities for onsite.

    Cons

    should provide better package and policies should be bit transparent regarding promotion,hike and bonus. If you are in big account bit difficult to change your account.
