    Pros

    IBM training program is great

    Cons

    They asked you to train people offshore, once you are done with the skills transfer, you are laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    how can IBM gets all the corporate tax credit but they keep that money and laid offs US workers? IBM moves job to India/China where the cost is 1/8 or 1/3 cheaper.
