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

    Pros

    Many of the old IBM ways still exist, such as lots of great 1st line managers who used to get lots of training in how to be a great manager, lots of team spirit and willingness to be helpful, and some optimism still remains.

    Cons

    This is no longer a fun place to work. Middle and Senior management think it's all about them and their careers and not the products. Also, there are not enough people left to produce good products any longer. Quality is severely suffering. Also, everyone works from home, so it's like everyone has checked out, just collecting pay checks.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old IBM culture that used to work so well, which fundamentally included respecting and empowering your employees. Also, you are not all Steve Jobs, so by all of you senior managers sticking your noses so deeply into everything you are grinding the normal development processes to a snails crawl and frustrating everyone.
