    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depending on which team you work for you will get different feedback. In my case, my team has a flexible schedule, is dynamic/agile, and has good people (with exceptions). The type of work is deteriorating though.

    Cons

    Bad people drive good people out of the company. Apparently, management is not realizing this as I see many good people leaving, and bad ones staying (I'm in transition as I do consider myself a good one!)

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes.
