    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is nothing good about being in a company that is acquired by IBM.

    Cons

    Being in a software company that was acquired by IBM was the worst job experience of my career. The IBM Management Team was absolutely clueless as to what our company did and as to why we were successful. Sales dropped by 50% in the first year after the acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the culture of the company that you are acquiring. It's a major part of the success of the company.
