I have been working at IBM full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Pay was really high compared to what I'm supposed to get for being so junior. Nice office, really cool building, and really great people. A flexible schedule, yoga lessons, and gym. The company is really large and you feel like you belong.

Cons

No catered food and other things you can expect from a place like Google I guess. Also lots of bureaucratic tape I find. I didn't really get affected by that too much but I know my co-workers did.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less tape. More food.

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

    Pros

    Working from home. Working on different customer accounts.

    Cons

    Inefficient, highly process-driven. Focus is on reducing costs above everything else. No pay rises ever. Low morale. No reward and recognition. PBC process forces you to compete against your colleagues instead of collaborating with them. Layers and layers of managers managing each other. Service delivery managers move jobs so often, you can't keep track of them. Share options only for senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the hated PBC process. Cost of living pay rises every year.
