I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great place to meet people that can teach you a wide range of subjects.
Experience a highly process oriented work environment.
Oportunity to work with high end softwares and systems.
Oportunity to develop projects on your own, and develop them to help the company.
To see your efforts rewarded to you in a very professional manner, and exciting manner.

Cons

Burocracy sometimes is an issue.
High rotation inside the company.
Sometimes work/life balance can be an issue, but its rare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think IBM is an extremely mature company that is very process oriented, but sometimes following some guidelines provided by the company, can limit the potential for more creative solutions.

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

    Pros

    Easy to get in.
    Difficult to get fired.
    OK starting salary.
    Nice people.
    Great start for a career.

    Cons

    It is a cost center.
    Difficult to get any meaningful raises.
    Bureaucracy and super tight budget (remember - cost center) makes it difficult to get to good trainings.
    The salary becomes pretty dull pretty quick.
    Not much benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more direct towards your employees. We know when you are giving us false or mistified information trying to "satisfy" us. People are not stupid there. Also, help the people who are way below the average salary on a given team.
