I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

As a big company, there are frameworks in place (which are missing from a smaller company) to provide context for creating and sharing information. There's also a diversity of areas to move on to when you're looking for your next position within the company, provided you're not looking to move up.

Cons

Marketing is an undervalued and under-funded area, which is constantly cut whenever the company goes through a downsizing, to the point where it's effectiveness is compromised. There's a move underfoot throughout all disciplines to outsource as many jobs overseas as possible, for cost cutting. Raises and bonuses are a joke during good times and bad.

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

    Pros

    Great brand name, get "a look" for most proposals. Strong marketing "fluff" and pays well.

    Cons

    Very little employee support, no personal connections to employees, they are all numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Build a culture. Define it and live it. Be more personable to employees.
