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

    Pros

    IBM has great technical projects, amazing engineers, programmers and scientists and the horsepower to make things happen.

    Cons

    IBM has changed from the overly safe, job for lifetime, company before the 90's to a highly competitive employer constantly pruning the perceived bottom 10%. While teamwork is required to complete projects, rewards are focused on individuals. If you are highly skilled, competitive and seek the limelight, go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the mass layoffs when the company is clearly not in jeopardy. It can be forgiven in the 90's when the company was spiraling out of control. Not now.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A wealth of resources at your fingertips. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company and get experience in multiple industries.

    Cons

    The systems and processes that have been prescribed for all 450,000 employees aren't always a good fit. Also, Lotus Notes.

    Advice to Management

    Give more autonomy to individual business units, don't force everyone to use the same computers, software, or expense system. The "JAM" sessions seemed pretty worthless, or maybe we were not trained well enough to make use of them to where they are worthwhile to us on an individual level.
