    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are still lots of smart people at IBM. If you like working long hours for little or no reward, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    This is the worst managed company I have ever worked for. None of the smart people I mentioned in "Pros" is in upper management. Although I see quite a few favorable reviews of IBM on glassdoor, in my experience the only people who think this is a good place to work are those who have never worked anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    1. Focus on creating real value for customers rather than just acquiring new revenue streams.
    2. Drop the rah-rah stuff; we are not fooled. True greatness is inversely proportional to the amount of it that comes out of your mouth.
    3. Grow up.


  2. "Good experience and brand"

    Pros

    Technical firm, powerful brand, lots of exposure to world-changing organization. Pay was competitive with other offers I had, but the IBM training and recognition was helpful.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, typical of large organizations. Oftentimes difficult to get initiatives pushed through, which is a complaint I heard from a few full-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Inject more transparency into the ranks, make sure employees understand what is their role and purpose in the greater scheme of the business machine.
