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

    Pros

    Good position for early career opportunities.

    Cons

    Not very well structured. Pay is low. Travel 100% even though it says 50%. Different mentality between CIC centers and regular IBM. IBM treats the CIC as "Near Shore" workers with the concept of bringing offshore work to the US. No defined career path for early professionals after a certain point. Managers make it hard to promote to band 7 while CBDers in the company automatically get promoted between the 1.5-2 year mark. Managers change every 6-10 months because they don't even live in Baton Rouge.

    Advice to Management

    pay your employees what the market suggests... Provide same career path structure that you provide CBDers. Make relocation available after a certain time with the company.
