    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of job opportunities, good for starting a career. Your happiness will greatly depend on the particular position you'll end up in. However be careful, most jobs in Bratislava are just copying excel sheets from one to another. The only thing you'll learn in these positions is how to live in a super-formalized environment.

    Cons

    Once you learn how to do your simple daily tasks, you will become constrained by IBM formal culture. The company in BA is everything but innovative (e.g. still using office 2003 if you can get your hands on one) and it is hard to come up with initiatives. But, again, this all depends on the position you're in. I would not recommend doing a career in IBM's International Services Centre.
