    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IBM provides ample opportunities for the growth of its employees. It also puts in a lot of trust in its employees which I found was really motivating.

    Cons

    Once you’re in the company, it’s difficult to get good salary hikes. Not impossible though!

    Advice to Management

    I was fully satisfied by the management I worked under, so I’d just say keep up the good work!
