      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Colleague aren’t the worst

      Cons

      Finance is every where over the world. To understand a transaction you need to call people from all around the world as the company is too focus on cost rather than quality. Very cut throat environment. If they decide that a country is cheaper to operate, they will fire everyone and then hire in new place.

      Advice to Management

      Know what you team is doing to save cost.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Depending on your manager and colleagues, it can be a pretty good place to work at. Pushes you to go for personal improvement, go for patents, etc. Good chance you might have to travel. A good amount of work flexibility.

      Cons

      It's a huge company, so there's a certain level of bureaucracy that might make it difficult to make changes. Bonus is almost non-existent. Also a good chance you might have to travel.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      It is an equal opportunity employer. Fast Moving. Plenty of Opportunities to learn new stuff and cutting edge stuff! Pragmatic. No Frill. Strategically Intent. Globally connected. Working at anywhere, at anywhere.... Seamlessly integrated. Far Sighted core leaders!

      Cons

      This is a place that makes you feel your skill has a limited shelf-life. Change is an ever Constant. Brutal cost cutting in low return areas....dwindling employees' benefits. Figuratively...you need to run very fast and smart!

      Advice to Management

      It is essential to find a delicate balance point between happy employees, the focus on client first and meeting shareholders' return expectation!
