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

    Pros

    Despite attrition in recent years, still has very deep technical staff. One of the greatest assets the company has is its people. Its amazing the work that can be done if you know how to navigate the organization....once you master this skill, the sky is the limit.

    Cons

    On the hardware side, its not clear what the vision is for the company. As software and services are the financial engines for the company, I think we've lost sight of how hardware fits into the equation. Also, when the chips are down, there are some really bright people that have come up with unbelievable tactical ideas that have helped us....lets leverage those people more on an everyday basis.

    Advice to Management

    Please let the internal team know the strategy with hardware.
