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

    Pros

    For those afforded the opportunity to work from home, there is great work/life balance. The company does have some decent benefits, though healthcare benefits have waned dramatically over the past few years. The biggest benefit of working in a company like IBM, however, is the ability to move into different roles and try new things. The company is vast, and opportunities abound.

    Cons

    I've worked at IBM for many years. The culture has shifted dramatically, and not all for the good. The executives clearly don't care much about the individual employee and are focused, quarter to quarter, on the stockholders only. They have yet to realize that treating the employees well will result in better results, better profitability. The shift to "co-location" within the past couple of years has done a lot of damage to morale, even for those not directly impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people- your individual contributors. The culture is so focused on tactical responses to quarterly results that they lose focus on treating the employee with respect.

    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work is stimulating. Very bright coworkers. Some of only hardware and research work in nyc area. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Management sometimes gets in the way. Frequently changing and reorganization as they look towards the future - makes it harder for traditional hardware focused people since those jobs are not expanding. disrespectful of post docs.
