    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -pads your resume
    -helps you acquire industry experience
    -if you are lucky enough to have a good manager (which is rare) you can have flexibility and opportunities to develop.

    Cons

    -they outsource everything they can, so your job is constantly in jeopardy.
    -long hours without care or concern about work/life balance.
    -compensation is below industry standard
    -benefits are below industry standard
    -little to no appreciation or recognition for work done.

    Advice to Management

    If your company has been profitable for the past 4 years, it's time to quit "tightening the belt" and give back to the employees whose backs you have built your wealth upon.
