    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    You have a brand on your cv

    Cons

    Constant job insecurity due to a bench arrangement meaning once your role finishes, you're at risk if you cannot find new work immediately
    No support to gain industry standard qualifications - courses are in-house, online, IBM related only
    Pay lower than the public sector equivalent
    Little support from colleagues onsite
    No physical contact from managers
    Unpaid travel time to training and meetings
    Your job title can be changed even if you do not have the skills or experience

    Advice to Management

    See people as people and not just as billable beings. Consider why employees should work for you rather than go contracting.
