    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Tampa, FL

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Exposure to many areas, people, and various types of work; Travel to various locations around the US; Ability to become a strong team contributor; Stellar co-workers with great know how and/or determination; Huge network to find support and help; Great benefits; Very stable and secure feeling;

    Cons

    Extremely large company - hard to not just be a number; Lack of personal touch/feel; 100% travel; Difficult to obtain promotions and raises; Bonuses are very minimal; No true feeling of team/family/belonging; Constantly being put in situations where you are the "expert" but know very little;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to make your teams and groups have a tighter feel - like family. Being there and traveling to various client sites makes it hard to bond with team members or care about those you work with. Make it easier for good employees to get raises and promotions - the current system is broken when new hires make the same/more than 5 year veterans that receive high ratings every year.
