    Pros

    Many opportunities with a variety of customers.
    A lot of freedom to innovate and develop better ways of doing things.
    Huge opportunities to learn and develop abilities.
    A lot of independence given to staff.

    Cons

    Clients are overpromised resources and services that haven't been developed. More coordination because sales and technical services would easily resolve this.
    Staff not protected from verbal aggression and abuse from customers.
    Not enough listening to lower level staff with direct customer facing roles.
    Failure to manage workloads resulting in hugely unrealistic workloads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coordinate relationships between management and operational staff more effectively.
    Stop selling services you cannot deliver, or at least delay implementation until capabilities are developed.
    Don't pick up bad customers on the promise of future business - it is already resulting in collosal losses.
    Listen to your staff - don't just take the clients word for it.
    Stop promising resources to clients that don't exist.

    It's a great experience for a short period of time, not a long term option.

    Pros

    As a consultant you are given the rare opportunity to work in a variety of Fortune 500 companies and see what they do right/wrong. You will rarely be bored.

    Cons

    Road warrior becomes less of a novelty and more of a hassle. You are given zero notice when you will be shipping out to a new engagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop better means to keep employees with IBM for longer tenures. Especially in the services space ensure there is a method for sustaining employees.
