    I worked at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Pay Very good facilities Training was very good, and as served me well in my career. Paid for me to go on external courses. Opportunity to take charity days

    Very strict deadlines for projects. Rely to heavily on video conferences, which are almost impossible when you have a large amount of people involved in multiple locations.
