I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are many opportunities to change positions/specialties/focus areas without having to go find a job at a different company.

Cons

As a sales person, I started out in a local office with frequent face-to-face contact with management. Ultimately I was laid off by a manager I had never met in person. I have heard that there are plans to rebuild an office/collaborative/supportive environment, which is needed in order to help employees feel connected to resources and learn how to navigate the complex structure of a large corporation from more experienced IBMers.

Advice to Management

Value your employees and re-establish the culture where employees feel like they have an advocate for their success.
