    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Top tech company in the world. Gives consultants the best resources to learn anything.

    Cons

    As an incoming CBD consultant you may not land a project for a few months. You have to hunt for projects. Being on the bench for a short period of time will land you on a PIP plan.

    Advice to Management

    Have projects prepared for incoming consultants.

  4. Good place to start but, no room for growth.

    I have been working at IBM for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Decent place to start in I.T. IBM offers a wide variety of experience for newcomers in this field of work. Starting pay is okay.

    Cons

    Poor communication from higher ups which makes work feel like a Kafkaesque nightmare at times . Hours are very unpredictable. No opportunity for advancement. After 5 years of working for IBM my pay is the same and the hours are just as unpredictable

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as more than just a number. Try to offer a path forward towards better paying more stable jobs. Have our managers communicate with us more.

  5. Place the talent they have in the right positions for the company to prosper. To many metrics for false opportunities.
