    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Plenty of work in a field I enjoy. Big buildings plenty of elbow room. Flexible schedules start ans stop times.

    Cons

    Management is unfair to most employees. Pay raises are far and few if any 1 and 2% tops. Management lies to the employees on a regular basis from first line all the way up. No funds available to purchase the tools needed to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the employees and run the business with integrity. Believe it or not employees under 1st level management really are not all that stupid.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn are fabulous. The company has more resources and technology (evidenced by patents) than nearly any other. If IBM chooses to, it can create a new market.

    Cons

    Over the past 4 years, there has been an increasing focus on short term results. Nearly everyone is turned into a "quota-based salesperson." This results in a confrontational and toxic environment, where people who used to collaborate try to compete and take resources and clients from one another.

    Advice to Management

    Analyze what brought Amazon and Apple where they now are and what put IBM into its recent position of 20+ quarters of declining revenue.
