    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with on projects. Opportunities to travel and work on interesting projects. Decent salary and benefits to start.

    Cons

    Unrealistic PBC- personal business commitment goals. Total focus is on separating clients from their money. Directed to work more hours at financial period ends to meet advertised revenue expectations. Executed "resource action'... Layoffs instead of reassigning trained and effective consultants to fill current openings. Too many psychophants who drank the koolaid.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some leadership skills and quit treating your revenue treating resources ("practitioners") like disposable chattel. Learn to 'walk your talk', consultants are your bread and butter.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people working on just about anything you can imagine.

    Cons

    Increasingly driven by financial targets, declining investment in innovation, growing employee turnover, stress, and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Delighted customers drive revenue and profit, not relentless focus on cost savings.
