    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Many career and mobility opportunities. Training available. Will gain valuable work experience.

    Cons

    After you negotiate your hiring salary, don't expect to see a salary increase for several years, even if you are a top performer and are ranked as such. Even with the highest performance rating, I received less than a 3% increase.

    Advice to Management

    After I tendered my resignation, the offers for promotion and increases came. You need to do a better job of retaining top talent. I have no regrets leaving and have significantly increased my income after spending 7 years at IBM with a flat salary (less than 5% over 7 years).
