    I worked at IBM as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    While working as a subcontractor had its advantages at times since these is no cooling off period since you work for IBM instead of the financial company directly. This allowed me to be there almost four years with no gaps.

    Cons

    To increase their bottom line they would ask that you take 40 hours off UNPAID each quarter. From what I understood the contract they had with the financial company was to provide service for a set fee so even though we were not being paid they still were. We were also asked to not tell the financial company we worked for that we were required to take UNPAID time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stopping telling your contractors that you need to do this to continue the services while at the same time having billions in profit for the quarter.
