I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- good for graduates to get experience
- good technical resources/knowledge
- usually quick moves to different roles
- leaders/management usually promoted to senior roles

Cons

- lack of support for professionals, you are expected to move to management position, if you are good in your professional area
- generally lower salary vs competition for the same job
- general move to internally outsource the jobs w/ decreasing quality of work (there seem to be no internal metrics for that)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decide if you want to attract professional talent and pay for it, or keep just keep IBM as company of and for leaders.

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

    Pros

    The people you got to work with were amazing. They were always helpful and we had fun.

    Cons

    Management didn't care at all. Instead of doing their job one of the Managers would only organize her wedding and nothing else. Have no idea how she even got the position as she was clearly not qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a competent management team
