    Pros

    For a contractor, there are no pros to working there. The people at IBM are actually very pleasant. It is the culture that needs improvement.

    Cons

    IBM is not concerned with any of its contract employees. Workforce reductions and furloughs do little to improve overall morale. The culture at IBM is all about meeting IBM financials with little apparent regard to customer needs. Contract employees are told not to discuss workforce reductions with the customers they support. Why? Those customers would most likely get upset if they knew the level of support they should be getting has been reduced.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of implementing contractor furloughs, simply rate all contractors and dismiss those contractors that rate the lowest. Eliminating excess management positions, hiring GOOD project managers and eliminating non-performers would improve performance, morale and ultimately improve the margins IBM is so desperate to make.

    Pros

    Technical firm, powerful brand, lots of exposure to world-changing organization. Pay was competitive with other offers I had, but the IBM training and recognition was helpful.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, typical of large organizations. Oftentimes difficult to get initiatives pushed through, which is a complaint I heard from a few full-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Inject more transparency into the ranks, make sure employees understand what is their role and purpose in the greater scheme of the business machine.
