    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and work with clients around the world. It's good experience and if you don't mind traveling all the time then it is perfect for you

    Cons

    My opinion only: Lots of travel and not a big work life balance if you are looking for it. Was told that I wouldn't travel at all but ended up being 100 %.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to contract and percent of travel
