    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM is very flexible and understanding of work hours, if I need to take off a little early for an appointment it's no problem. They also allow us to work from home and it's very low stress most of the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to see what is coming over the horizon so we lack foresight in many cases making it difficult to plan for things.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to great technologies and products, great mentors, and fascinating projects. If you get in with a group that keeps selling interesting work, you will not be bored!

    Cons

    The beaurocracy can be daunting, and the compensation is not quite in line with competitors. You really have to be a self promoter to get anywhere, because otherwise management has no inventive to promote you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to top performers. You will keep losing them without competitive bonuses.

    Pros

    Looks good on your resume

    Cons

    You need to be proactive in order to be assigned good projects
