    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Career advancement. It's a reputable company and the benefits like 410K matching is more compared to some other employers. There is good work place diversity.

    Cons

    There are not many young people working there. Even if you are dedicated hard worker, sometimes due to budget restrictions, promotion is hard to come along.

    Advice to Management

    More communication and appraisals.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people and great perks. Vacation was plentiful and negotiable. Many experts all around to consult and gleam knowledge from. Flexible work from home options.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the fray. Difficult to transition roles or change departments. IT support staff was non-existent. Engineers had to constantly solve their own IT / networking issues, taking critical time away from the real job. Performance evaluations are a farce. IBM is changing its business model and is probably abandoning the semiconductor manufacturing business, which might explain the decline in... support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Cease splitting up teams around the world.
