A mid-life crisis waiting to happen

GBS Public Sector Consultant (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

I worked at IBM as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood compensation
Job security
Widespread geographic options
Clear paths of promotion

ConsBoring
Cookie-cutter projects
Older employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
