I worked at IBM as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Challenging work. Smart people, highly educated, very driven. Wonderful facilities and environment. Great camaraderie amongst the staff and support is good at most levels.

Cons

Demanding on time -- puts increasing pressure on maintaining work life balance. The increasing pressure on revenue and focus on higher margins is getting more challenging for all to meet.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work! CEO is Excellent.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and telecommuting. Developing products can be interesting.

    Cons

    You are forced to work using IBMs platforms and infrastructure which is usually behind the industry. Also with so many different pieces of the architecture of the software solution being developed at the same time, it raises the risk significantly as many pieces are interdependent of each other and when one fails, it breaks all others. Many different departments with different goals and agenda's lead to the nothing getting accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Our company suffers from large corporation syndrome, in which too many chefs in the kitchen. Too many decision makers in which it takes too long for any decisions or direction to be made, which shorten life-cycle period for planning, architecture, development, testing, etc...which always results in hacked work and lots of technical debt.
