    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay, strong respect for the individual, professionalism

    Cons

    rare manager that abuses power, usually nipped in the bud

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    revisit the end-to-end (net) value of chasing the lowest cost geography (global resources). A low cost country (LCC) doesn't remain so, and so constantly chasing the next LCC, including relocating or retraining, adds cost that defeats the purpose of a LCC
