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

    Pros

    Beats the unemployment line....beats the unemployment line..(there's a 20 word minimum)...beats the unemployment line..

    Cons

    Too numerous to mention. They don't give a hoot about anyone. They only care about billable hours. Endless procedures. Their "trainings" are a joke. The managers are clueless and know nothing about technology. The equipment they give us stinks. Horrible company. They place employees in jobs they are not qualified for just to keep them on billing. No longer the great company they were when they were Big Blue.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. The workers would be better off without you.
