    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work at Home, flexible schedule.
    Pay on time
    Though everyone works at home, good communication but under such tight schedules, you can't suggest better way of doing things.

    Cons

    India employees have such poor English skills, that understanding there design becomes a problem.
    Indiscriminate off shore hiring and laying off seasoned engineers in the US is a poor policy to develop a good product.
    AT&T contract is so wrought with technical issues, back off new design before you can fix the old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some decency to let a contractor know about a furlough instead of one day prior to last day.
    Treat people as you would like to

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
