    I worked at IBM full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work culture. Good benefits with support for overall career and personality development. Very open about contacting anyone working within IBM anywhere in the world with supporting technical tools to do the same.

    Cons

    It is a big big company and what you are working on could be similar to someone else's work in IBM and you won't even realize it.
