    Pros

    IBM allows for great flexibility with research, and this can greatly assist you with your personal academic or professional goals.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    My immediate Engineering and Development team were great to work with. Work-life-balance is great as well as the ability to work-from-home. Performance is rewarded generously with great Benefits. The opportunity for growth is tremendous, but you have to keep up with technology trends and the vision of the company in order to be part of the leading edge.

    Cons

    Executive Management can be cut-throat with eliminating teams and positions. Make sure the project you are working on is in line with the company's future vision in order to maintain your employment.

    Pros

    Sometimes you have to do a lot of tasks and wear different hats. Can be stressful at times when dealing with critical situations. If you can't take some stress then do not apply.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot about the day-to-day experience as a software developer. Everyone was really nice and and willing to answer and questions you may have. There were opportunities to collaborate and talk to swe's all over the country remotely, so there's an abundance of knowledge to gain.

    Cons

    Housing was a bit tough to find, but I think that was more so a consequence of location.

    Advice to Management

    Allow "shadowing" days.
