I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Lots of resources that smaller companies to do things cannot afford to do. Lots of good people working there.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy, overloaded with process. Too many databases and web apps needed to do straightforward stuff.

Advice to Management

Tap into your history. IBM can still be the company it used to be. Stop being short-sighted. Your people are your most important asset. Don't dump a bunch just to make some numbers. If the numbers are missed, then adjust your focus and move on.

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

    Pros

    Startup feel as it is a small lab. Very friendly group of people. Foster city is a nice place.

    Cons

    Very expensive place to live in. Salary isn't great. Public transport isn't great either after 7pm.
