    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Access to new technologies and benefits

    Cons

    New up or out management approach is driving good people out. Also going through a thinning out exercise of mid to senior level associates.

    I worked at IBM (More than a year)

    Pros

    IBM is one of the most globally recognized companies and employment there carries a degree of status and credibility. Despite being a large company, working teams are small. Areas of IBM are incredibly innovative and cutting edge.

    Cons

    If you do not aggressively negotiate the salary you want as part of the interview process, you are pretty much stuck. Getting respectable raises is nearly impossible. It is difficult to figure out the "culture" of IBM. So many small companies are acquired and absorbed into the organization, it is hard to see cohesion and really understand the corporate identity.
