    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Great potential working with some great SME's and clients

    Cons

    IBM only interested in profit. Not employees. As soon as there's a drop in any quarter profit employees seem to be given marching orders.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your employees. Value employee experience and don't be driven by the accountants.
