    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good on resume
    learning technical skills

    Cons

    Management is inept. At least in the Gaithersburg, MD BCRS site.
    No raises. Pay cuts.
    Resource action to reduce workforce... then hiring for same job Months later. To me it looks like a way to get rid of higher paid skilled workers and replace with lower paid employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Lying to employees.
    Treat your employees better.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to learn while working on projects.
    In a big corporation like IBM, opportunity to travel to different geographies

    Cons

    Very little value associated with long term growth of employees
    For those not excited about travel, it can be very exhausting
