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

Pros

-Global recognized name and influence
-What works, works well
-Many bright people
-Opportunities to try new jobs inside IBM

Cons

-Layoffs (RA) keep coming in many different groups to meet Wall Street profit expectations
-You can get lost in the shuffle (dilbert in the stacks) if you are not vocal
-Some older management not able to "try new things"

Advice to Management

Listen more to your employees, create opportunities for younger employees to advance, don't have people stay with IBM into their late 60s and 70s if they cannot hack it!
