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

    Pros

    Freedom environment, international cooperation opportunity,

    Cons

    401K matching become one time per year, rather than per pay check, bonus per year is very low even with highest PBC, salary increase speed is even slower than inflation 3%, no stock.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employee good is important to the success of the company in the long term of view. Bad 401K matching policy, slow salary increase speed will hurt the motivation and loyalty of the employee. Good finical report with high profit in short term based on the scarification of employee's benefit will hurt the company in the long term of view.
