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

    Pros

    Flexibility, lots of resource for developing new hard skills and keep current with technology changes , competitive compensation package and benefits.

    Cons

    Never ending corporate changes. Internal lack of direction, every 6 months priorities and quota changes, variable compensation plan changes, manager changes, massive layoffs. IBM is undergoing mayor internal shifts to try to better compete with AWS, Google and Microsoft. Customers are tired with constant rep changes.

    Advice to Management

    Be coherent, do fewer things GREAT than a lot mediocre things .
