    I worked at IBM as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great framework for those starting their career off. You will receive a lot of training, and the company is very structured and organized.

    Cons

    Company is very bottom line and this affects raises, promotions, and layoffs. Sometimes things can take a really long time because there is too much process and bureaucracy. It is really hard to get a good promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be too process focuses. Sometimes things just have to get done.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
