    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities, if you're willing to look and relocate.

    Cons

    Terrible raises and bonuses, even for good employees. Declining benefits each year. Co-location was handled poorly. Near constant fear of layoffs is stifling.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, they are not just numbers. Figure out what your true strategy going forward is, the last couple don't seem to be working out very well.

    Pros

    IBM is going through a transformation to adapt to fast changing technology industry. This has created an environment where new jobs and positions are continuously appearing and is a great place to start, build, and grow your career.

    As you would expect for large company, it is very political, which is hindering the company's attempts to transform.

    Too many underperforming products and services. Streamline and focus the company.

    I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was super helpful and I learned a lot. Would highly recommend an internship here. Make sure to ask for more work if you have the opportunity to, initiative goes a long way. Lots of room to grow and learn.

    Cons

    They do give you less work sometimes because you are an intern, so don't be afraid to ask for more if you can handle it.
