I have been working at IBM as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

IBM is a great place to start out in the work force. As a contractor, the hours are wonderful if you only want to work 40 hours a week, and when you need time off, hours seem to be pretty flexible. This was a great place to start out at as a first job.

Cons

If you are looking to work overtime, look elsewhere. Also, IBM is a very large place, and you will find that there are times where decisions don't really make much sense, but you are expected to follow those decisions anyways. Be prepared to work with many different people, from many different backgrounds and geographies.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Ability to work remotely
    - Exposure to many different clients and businesses

    Cons

    - Constant Layoffs (or 'Resource Actions', as they call it). They literally lay hundreds to thousands of people off every Quarter
    - They overwork their people tremendously

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying people off every three months
