I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Many different projects and opportunities to move around.
Many experts in different area, from whom help is often given freely.
Flexible work hours.

Cons

Ratings/reviews seem to make it necessary to compete with co-workers, with emphasis on visibility to management.
Trend seems to be moving jobs overseas, reducing US workforce. Cuts are often across the board, so many very good employees being let go.
Most projects end up being teams in multiple locations around the world, making collaboration difficult to match up work schedules.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to collaboration of employees, and not just "leadership by presentations".

    Pros

    Plenty of career opportunities, Good Benefits, Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Salary, Career Advancements, No Green Card Processing after 5/6 years, bureaucracy, Recognition is hard to come by. Indian policies are bueracractic. Seems they have dropped their bar as they compete with the lowest in the market.
