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

    Pros

    working at home is great. there is opp to move jobs/roles within the company. there a lot of great people working for IBM. great products.

    Cons

    too much process. first line managers are rarely qualified to lead (and they can decide your career!) there are too many mediocre people "hiding out" who are very comfortable but not motivated. The management team is aware of these people but rarely does anything about it, which is frustrating for the talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and they will reward you.


  2. "Mainframe is fun"

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good, treated as professionals as long as you meet deadlines. The mainframe is exciting as soon as you accept its not going away.

    Cons

    Little to no formal training (must be a self-learner), non-transparent pay scale and rating system. Managers don't seem to care about moral.
