    I worked at IBM as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    IBM is a great company to work with since they have a solid reputation for their brand at their client locations.IBM policies for employees are encouraging and they have a good work style.Having multi functional teams representing IBM, one can easily work with cross functional teams in achieving the overall objective of the assignment.As an individual,the brand name acts as a morale booster to work in their client locations personally

    Cons

    Team coordination with offshore teams has to be improved a lot and adapting to the client needs much faster using the company's experience needs major improvement in some areas of project management.Also the company should provide quality amenities at work place to keep their employees motivated to work create high quality products and services

    Advice to Management

    Allocate more funds to provide phones,desks,computer accessories to the employees deployed at client locations and implement methodologies to train managers to keep the team dedicated and focussed

  2. Well Compensated Machine

    Pros

    Very competative pay. Remote/WFH capabilities a definite plus. Great Intern bonus oppurtunities like lunches, tours, and dinners.

    Cons

    You are treated like a piece of hardware. Using your ID# you are even refered to as hardware. Very impersonal. All meetings were teleconferences so I never met 95% of the people that I worked with on a day to day basis. Outsourced employees are integrated into every level of the business process, even if the language capabilites are not 100% on par for efficint work streams.

    Advice to Management

    Insert some shreds of personality into the manotony of day to day work. The company went out of their way to make the experience around work more personable like adding a minigolf course, yet the overall environment still felt like I was a Business Machine.
