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

    Pros

    IBM has a true grasp of business, plans well, and teaches its employees. It is the perfect place to begin a career and learn all you can. If you can manage to stay relevant, it can also be a great place to end your career, aka retire.

    Cons

    IBM has lost some of what used to be what set it apart: Respect for the Individual. It was too quick to try to mirror some of the behaviors of newer, fresher companies in the 80's and 90's. Most of those companies are no longer around; IBM managed to outlast them, but at the cost of some great talent.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to foster the loyalty that made IBM a great company. An employee having a rough time may say the wrong thing to the wrong person and in a flash their career is over.


  2. "Good experience in the short term, not a good company for long term employment."

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse culture, entry pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive environment with little emphasis put on annual increases or bonuses and finding a manager that prioritizes career development can be hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger focus on career development and discouraging the sometimes counter productive levels of competition will lead to more cohesive teams.
