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

    Pros

    IBM vast resources to leverage in order to be productive - networks of experts, rich knowledge bases, and a rich pool of software tools to develop your products. IBM strengths in virtualization and information security gives it legs for the long run.

    Cons

    There is some uncertainty as to which older products and services will remain strategic as IBM makes decisions in its current "transition" phase.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold in shedding older products and services, and start new market-driven projects with an entrepreneurial approach in order to compete in with quickly moving companies.
