    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation, Work From Home, Vacation Time, Smart People, Great Training

    Cons

    Never feel fully secure in your role as IBM is either selling off parts of the business or sending down resource actions multiple times per year.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the different BUs to function more independently instead of making major decisions for brands you're not directly responsible for. Set a vision and stick to it. Don't move the goal posts every 6 months.
