    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will find that IBM prides itself on education the workforce, networking within the workforce, training the workforce. I'm not certain if you can find a better orchestrated internal system for improving employee performance and training for carreer advancement.

    Cons

    1. The amount of time performing tasks/training outside the normal work day with the client. 2. The extra 4 hours in a work week (44) amounts to almost exactly the same amount of time as 5 weeks of vacation. You effectively work off your vacation.
