    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    IBM is committed to client success with consistent and stable work environment. An innovative company who are champions of open source.

    Cons

    As a large company, you’d expect ana abundance of opportunity and movement. If you’re good at what you do, there is little chance opportunities to grow in a role that may move you on won’t naturally come your way.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in yourself. Seek opportunities for growth. Communicate your goals and plans. Without communicating, no one will know and therefore not think to share when an opportunity arises.
