Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at IBM as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Close to home and flexible hours.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Doesn't look after Contractors.

Advice to Management

Look after your Contractors, they work just as hard as permanent staff but don't get any recognition.
