I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

people here are always ready to help, and i love the atmosphere among colleages

Cons

work is somewhat boring, but it's due to the technical work itself.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training and learning options (though for .NET you won't get a chance to apply the same)
    Relaxed work environment (offshore)
    Good brand
    Good initial package

    Cons

    Terribly top heavy company - I have seen teams with 3 developers and 2 PMs.
    The variable pay - you won't get 100% no matter how good you perform. Average payout is 40% only.
    No proper development projects in .NET in Kolkata location.
    Extremely unfriendly managers who care the least of the well being of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start a horizontal too - this vertical oriented assignments ruin the technical capability of a resource.
    Reduce the number of managers turn it from an inverted pyramid (almost) to a pyramid.
