    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of long time employees that appreciate IBM. Pragmatism in daily dealings.

    Cons

    Lots of volatility in your job security. Yearly layoffs and MO of downsizing entire teams with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about co-location, its hurting our hiring and retention efforts
