Great Company....when ur 40+

Consultant (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsGreat Health insurance benefits. When I was there I was fully covered under a PPO plan without paying a dime from my pocket.

ConsLow Salary
Really only doing IBM related product work. As a technical guy I did not like the fact that we were always looking to use IBM products/solutions for customers instead of what is best product/solution for the customers needs. Did not like the 44 hour minimum work week.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be all about selling IBM software and hardware. Do REAL consulting

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IBM is on a disturbing path. Offshoring most US jobs then using landed India resources to fill what little remains.
