I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Decent processes that respect PMBOK, ITIL, SDLC and SCRUM. Varied solutions across industries. Solid professionals across the board.

Cons

Overly matrixed; customer value best achieved with PE's own verticle resources, rather than matrixed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage from the customer value propositions vs. positioning for renegotiations

Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and decent benefits. Enjoyed the people I was working with (excluding some management).

    Cons

    Management has established an environment that is extremely competitive. it was all about the billable utilization numbers. At a senior level or above the expectations are extremely high. They tell you up front they don't expect you can get everything done in 40 hours a week. There is a lot of bureaucratic tasks that have to be done that aren't counted in the normal work week. Good salary if you can take the stress and don't care about work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to go back to the days where people were treated as individuals. When the economy picks up you will lose many good employees.
