Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good technology, interesting problems to work on.

Cons

Ratio of demands to rewards is high. Either minimal or zero raises, minimal bonus at best, no profit sharing. Generally high pressure atmosphere at all levels of management. Typical expectation of being online and available at all hours of the day and weekends.

Advice to Management

If you're going to expect so much out of people at least compensate them fairly.
