    I worked at IBM as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    great technology, lots of exposure to new things.

    Cons

    No training , more push to self training, self serving managers. lots of reliance on cheap workforce in India and china leading to frequent layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have some decency to treat people respectfully and not think of them as slaves or minions,

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I don't see any pros to working for this organization within IBM. I have worked at different divisions of IBM and had a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    The company aims to send all of these jobs outside of the country. As a consequence, they do not take care of their employees. There is no training support or funding. To make matters worse, due to constant layoffs, the employee morale is very low making it a very unpleasant work environment. To top it off, when you are hired you are promised training and tuition reimbursement which never happens. Pay is at least 20K below market value. You are not allowed to move outside of the organization despite of open positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises you cannot keep and take ownership of your own lack of leadership.
