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

Pros

IBM does an excellent job of laying out the corporate roadmap. I understand our vision, priorities and how my role fits into the bigger picture to meet these objectives. I have an amazing manager that trusts me and I am able to execute the best way I see fit. Having the right manager at IBM makes a big difference! Also, must of the US based employees have the option of working from home. That is a huge perk for me! I have the discipline to work from home. I probably work longer house because of it but I really like the flexibility it provides. I also work with some AMAZING people. Like in every company there are good and bad but overall most people at IBM are top notch.

Cons

IBM is a big company and continuing to grow. It's sometimes difficult to find the right person to assist on an engagement. Also, there are inconsistencies across brands.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours
    Nice compensation package (salary, pension, bonus)
    very established company, does not feel like the Wild West. Everything is accounted for and there's a procedure for everything
    Run Linux on the laptops - in fact, Linux is the supported, official O/S for workstations

    Cons

    Very slow and bureaucrati
    Very much focused on processes and compliance - lots of spreadsheet updating and not much tech work
    They try do save money everywhere - they took away our trash cans, took away the coffee machines

    Pros

    lot of tech opportunities. Possibilities to shift internally.

    Cons

    Cost pressure, to much internally controlling, the squeeze your bal...s. Permanently reducing any perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are more important than excel sheets.
