I worked at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very smart and capable peers. Work is typically challenging when you find the right gig. Getting exposed to different companies and industries is rewarding.

Cons

Very Utilization driven. As long as you know the rules, you should be OK. No training (OJT), systems needed to get your work done typically have to be "baked into the deal" with the customer. Travel (Mo-Fr, Typically 100%), IBM used to be "Ive been moved" .. now its more like "I'm by myself"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Touch base with employees often. Out of sight does not need to mean out of mind.

    Middling pay, bureaucracy, poor focus on internal management skills and rewards

    Focus on developing and compensating solid performers. Make management and transition positions worth having, rather than a purgatory for progression and real pay.
