    Large organization which makes it hard for individuals to have their say and to be heard
    Don’t really care about individuals, profit always comes first
    relatively slow career progression

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Pretty much allowed to be yourself - good autonomy
    Reasonably varied work (sometimes)
    Can be interesting if all your ducks fall into line and you have a good team working on a good project

    Cons

    Huge administrative overhead
    Lots of incompetent people
    Perverse incentives created by poorly thought out performance metrics
    Feel like an employee ID number, not like a person
    Too much bidding for work that we want to win, not that we can do

    Advice to Management

    Looking up there is little to inspire me
