    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You'd be working for a strong brand name that everyone recognises and respects. It's a global company that's interconnected, so there's many opportunities to work with people in other countries, and even pursue careers over there (if you play your cards right). There's the option to work from home, although that can sometimes pose a problem (see 'cons'). There's jobs for anyone of any background (Project Management, Sales, Accounting, Consulting, etc), but not everyone.

    Cons

    Unless you're in the project management space, there's no formal training/hand-over proccess in most areas I've worked, so you'd be at the mercy of existing team members if you're new. Hands-on training can be poor. It's also difficult to achieve a strong team environment with synergy, because often people choose to work from home, and you don't get to speak with them face-to-face. Sometimes it's like you have to formally book a meeting just to see a member of your own team. Managers are good at what they do (technically), but lack important people skills - They're often task-orientated, and when under pressure, they focus solely their own survival than on their workers well-being. To be blunt, most managers I've experienced see their subordinates as tools rather than actual people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an effort to truly (and enthusiastically) understand your employees. Spend more time with them face-to-face, and take more interest in how their coping with workloads. If you can, discourage people from working from home unless they have a good reason, because people really should work together in the same office. Remember - Actions speak louder than words. You must DO. If you just offer lip service, then you can expect people to run off to the likes of HP, Accenture and Fuji Xerox.

    Doesn't Recommend
