    Pros

    Good benefits, good salary, solid laptops

    DIY benefits and IT support are draining and make one feel like an ant. Frequent mandatory training requirements are simplistic and boring. Too many internal websites.

    Less heavy handed corporate initiatives getting in the way of client work. Simplify internal websites.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Able to work remote most of the time.

    Cons

    They bought our company because it was so successful, then ruined our product (which always made LOTS of money) by packaging it into another product that nobody wanted. In addition, they put it into an umbrella division that was losing millions.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of a serial number and "level banding", get a clue about who does what, and maybe use a scalpel instead of a chainsaw when you need to lay people off. Paying an outsourced company to do this is just insult to injury.

    Opportunity for advancement when you apply yourself, retirement matching and great work environment.

    Keep allowing employees to contribute and excel in their talents.
