I have been working at IBM as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

IBM has a spectacular team. Everyone you work with is incredible. The company has an incomparable track record of innovation. The work/life balance is better than I've ever seen elsewhere. A lot of work can be done remotely.

Cons

With remote working, many people do not come into the office. This means you don't get to experience the excitement of a busy office or the physical company of your colleagues. If you thrive off human interaction in the work environment this could be considered a con.

    I worked at IBM as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have nice friendly people' and you get the chance to work with a vast array of technologies. Also, they trust you to make the right decisions with projects.

    Cons

    I was full time supplemental, which is a fixed contact for 3 years. It doesn't have much for career advancement potential. Great for just out of college people, but mid to senior people will find it very hard to be hired in as regular IBM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a better career path for senior level developers.

    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Raleigh, NC (US)

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Continuing education,
    research resources,
    above average benefits in 2009

    Cons

    Top down management with unrealistic objectives.
    80% – 90% of work day on conference calls which lead to having 12 – 14 hours days
    lack of investment to update infrastructure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the personal sacrifices made by those people who generating the revenue for IBM. Restore the family values that IBM once had.
