Pros

Professional Work Environment, Work from Home, Competitive Wages

Cons

This is a contract position - there is little in the form or benefits. Contractors do not have a career path with the company, and don't know how long they will be in their positions.

Advice to Management

Don't be so short sided in making decisions, provide better feedback to people, better communicate to individuals where they fit into the long term plans of their team.

    Pros

    flexible, good pay, dynamic, many job choices within the company. Very large customer base, so there is room for all types of skills and abilities. You can work your way up from lower positions. IBM also uses merit pay system and monitors performance, so you should always know how you 'stack up'.

    Cons

    constant change (is good and bad)

    Advice to Management

    more profit sharing for the top contributors.

    Pros

    IBM is a great company if you are looking for cutting edge technology, you want to learn, and travel especially if you are in the consulting business or want to be part of it. The salary is average, but benefits are great like 401k matching, free health care if you are single, and $300 in health rebates if you excercise and take care of self.

    Cons

    travel too much; consulting focused thus hard for career advancement; communication is hard since in GBS everyone is at client site thus can only communicate via e-mail, instant message, etc. Also it is very hard to move from one department to another.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employee; find out the point of unhappiness; watch out when promoting others based on personal preference rather than deserving
