Pros

Professional Work Environment, Work from Home, Competitive Wages

Cons

This is a contract position - there is little in the form or benefits. Contractors do not have a career path with the company, and don't know how long they will be in their positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so short sided in making decisions, provide better feedback to people, better communicate to individuals where they fit into the long term plans of their team.

    Pros

    Having IBM on your resume, it is a recognized company, the benefits are great because they cover everything. They have full coverage on the employee which is great. The starting pay is also reasonable, but moving up is difficult. It depends on the performance of the company. The bonuses are reasonable. Last year because of good performance, we got an 8% bonus. The w3 is the best internal intranet that made communication and structure of IBM easy to understand. Connecting with others through yearly training events was also a nice advantage at IBM. The health rebates of $250 were also great in promoting the health of their employees.

    Cons

    bureaucracy, minimal opportunities for advancement, limited opportunities for career development and moving around to different projects. Requesting for continuing education was difficult, there was too many requirements in the degree work study program. Training was limited, even if requested by manager. Service Area Managers are not all the same across the board, some are more attentive in fighting for their employees and some aren't. Once you get onto a project, it is difficult to get off and find another project to rollover to because the requirements for the positions require several years of experience, in which an entry level employee does not have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that more consideration for their employees. The reason I left was due to the paycuts for their IT specialists. It was not fair for people working on fixed price contracts.
