  1. "Solid pay, but not a great work environment"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Compensation and Benefits
    Current Contractor - Java Developer in Durham, NC

    I have been working at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    Some managers will work to implement good agile and/or xp work flows Pay is decent (for a contractor without benefits) Not super stressful depending on your manager

    Cons

    Corporate level puts pressure on managers to stifle agile flow and make XP nearly impossible to implement Contract to hire employees who have not left or been let go have not been hired on as full time employees after years of contract work Virtually no developer communication with end users of products High level management decisions lead to months of work on products that will never be sold. These kinds of... decisions have resulted in mass layoffs without regard to employee performance Lack of onboarding process leads to months of wheel-spinning before figuring out what's going on

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on lower level managers and encourage XP or at least quality agile practices Hire the long term contractors Find buyers for products in early stages before investing crazy amounts of money

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Room for growth in the company (and with your paycheck)

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to do a lot of tasks and wear different hats. Can be stressful at times when dealing with critical situations. If you can't take some stress then do not apply.
