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

Pros

Great place to work if you get matched up with the right management.
Competitive salary--not top of the market by any means, but the benefits package is great.

Cons

Too many managers lack any management or leadership qualities. They may great consultants, engineers, or accountants, but that doesn't mean they'l make even adequate managers.

Advice to Management

Invest more within the company.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM on resume and experience

    Cons

    Salary Salary Salary is a joke 20K below national averages for people with no experience
    Ability to transfer within IBM even after transitioning to regular status you have to wait another year
    No OT anymore to make up for the horrible salary anymore by transitioning us to regular status
    Inconsistent attendance policy as to who has to adhere to the three days work from Lansing and who can work from home whenever they wish even though they live in Lansing.
    Being put on projects that are not part of our skill set just to make the center hit it's utilization numbers and required to work OT when we are not paid for it to help the center hit utilization targets
    very few new benefits for being made a regular employee which the management tried to use to soften the salary situation

    Advice to Management

    Pay us what we are worth not the "low cost wage" that you refer to in the onboarding during the transition that is refered to as part of MDC
    Consistent attitude regarding attendance not single out certain individuals.
    Give us the yearly bonus that real IBMer's are given and treat us like them
