I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

You will work with very smart people

Cons

The compensation and incentive programs don't encourage collaboration or staying around. There is little reward for great people managers and no disincentive for poor ones. Decision making is held at the very top of the hierarchy which discourages risk taking or even straight talk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the compensation and incentive programs.
Push decision making lower down in the organization.
Drive more transparency. Everyone I work with is afraid to speak the truth.

    Pros

    very independent work culture. minimal office interaction in your home city; basically you're remote from your home city and travel to your clients. some may view this as a con.

    Cons

    minimal interaction with managers. excessive paperwork required annually to document annual performance. some may prefer to work independently.
