    I worked at IBM (More than 10 years)

    You have to work evenings and weekends.

    I love the ability to fit the customer needs to many solutions.

    Large. Cumbersome to get what you need for customers. Takes about a year to really fit in.

    streamline and buy more than customer bases.

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

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Good pay
    - Great training
    - Well known brand

    Cons

    - This company is OLD. It's over 100 years old, so they don't mess around with their bottom line. They make you pay for coffee for example.
    - They are trying fast to stay relevant, but it is tough in a landscape that is changing so fast
    - They have created a lot of partnerships with younger companies, but a lot of the sexy new tech requires a lot of foundational work that most companies don't have
    - It's hard to actually get anything done since many employees are disillusioned
    - They are like the grandparents in tech, which means they might die soon

    Advice to Management

    Keep your young talent. Don't spend thousands in training them and then let them go.
