I have been working at IBM full-time for less than a 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 for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big oversights, opportunities, people, languages, travel, redeployment, consideration, learning contents, acquisitions, maturity, big deals, mega deals, bonus, mega bonus, what else?

    Cons

    Flexibility == chaos; travel == disorder; internal procedures == slow motion; big deals == conflicting interests; family == no promotion; conducting rules == ethics in theory... A nightmare!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider Talent Management; people leaving a company after an acquisition is usual, and hard to understand.
