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

Pros

There are still a lot of really talented people working at Big Blue. If you look hard enough you can find deep expertise and learn a thing or two.

Cons

The bean counters run the shop. Getting anything done involves way more effort than it should because the company is optimized to keep costs down. With that as the focus ability to execute suffers.

Advice to Management

A profitability target for 2015 is not the same thing as vision.
