Pros

The work is always different, and the oppuritunity to work across multiple disciplines.
The availablity of information, from marketing talking points to low-level technical details is excellent.
An extraordinary amount of freedom to solve customer problems

Cons

Travel is required at times, in the present air travel 'experience' this is a bit of a hassle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I work too darn low in the food chain to be able to even think of any advice to give to Senior Management. As long as they do not interfere with my ability to do the work I am a happy camper.

    Pros

    Dedicated employees. Competitive pay and benefits. Large company with opportunity for skills and career advancement. Ability to work from home, job permitting.

    Cons

    Tasked to meet billable hours, which most times greatly exceed 40 hours. Whether or not you agree, a GBS employee is committed to 100% travel if s/he is a part of the GBS organization. Persons on external (green dollar) accounts are oftentimes treated better than those on internal (blue dollar) accounts come promotions, variable pay and raises. Management is great at not giving employees all the facts when presenting sensitive issues, such as the salary plan (raises). Continued initiatives to offshore labor. Execs like to limit their vision to the dollar sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shareholder value is very important, but so is the general happiness of the employees.
