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

    Pros

    State of the art in every respect. Be prepared to work. Be prepared to make IBM an extension of your family, because you will be expected to give it all you've got (and that can often mean work flowing into your time off - like weekends).

    Cons

    Sometimes long-term IBM employees can be a tad condescending. I guess that is an occupational hazard when you work for a large corporation, though. Keeping any negative thoughts you may have about individuals to yourself can help you in navigating "office politics." As said: occupational hazard in a big corporation. IBM is no exception. But if you resolve to do a good job (and are good at "handling" people and their idiosyncrasies) IBM is a company with many paths for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers. This will help stave off the feeling of being overwhelmed with all that is required of them. An to direct managers: keep a watchful eye on your "mentors." Some of them can be 'tormentors' in disguise...
