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

    Pros

    -Great exposure
    -Awesome allowances
    -Decent leave policies
    -Manageable work-life balance
    -Work from home (enjoyable for some, headache for some)

    Cons

    -Salary of candidates are in a fixed range which should be negotiable and adjusted as per their skills, talent & education and not just merely on 'years of experience' term

    Advice to Management

    This is to the top tier managements like country & ISA leads under which I worked:
    -PLEASE allow candidates to explore, expertise and not just make them run for mere project deadlines which will improve the quality of the project.

    This is for the solution architects who does not show there faces after project kick-off:
    -Kindly do proper requirement gathering before providing solution to the clients, which down the line client becomes unhappy and tries to manipulate the given project architecture which is a nightmare for the on-ground implementation, development, delivery & operations team.
