    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -People are generally very friendly,
    -hours / work location is flexible.
    -not much need to travel

    Cons

    -Way too executive driven, not engineering driven
    -Older, slow-moving culture
    -Few growth opportunities
    -Relatively low salaries

    Advice to Management

    Try to make engineers happy, rather than shareholders. Shed several executive layers. Promote engineers. Pay engineers on a level competitive with Google and Facebook and Wal-Mart(!). The $20 EPS target is overly restrictive. Get rid of it. Try to make a company that Google and Facebook employees might want to switch to.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training opportunity within the company if there is a need for the skills. Training for college grads is top notch for a short term employment opportunity.

    Cons

    Lack of benefits that a meaningful at lower bands. In fact, lower bands are in general paid worse than industry standards. Management levels seem to be well taken care of except for the amount of hours required is far more than the norm. A general lack of hustle across the entire company because there is no direct rewards for more work.
