I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great management and co-workers, come and go whenever for short breaks, no punch out time cards, hard work and long hours do pay off with recognition, free coffee all day, nice office with great views of Mississippi River, privacy rooms available for small meetings, nice conference rooms for team meetings, great desk set-up, intense but well-worth classes which offer free vouchers to obtain licenses upon completion.

Cons

Managers do change often but not really a con- this is a way to experience a 'fresh' outlook on team building which I suspect is why management does frequently change. If you are not one for adjustments or changes, this type of work force is not for you.

    Moving up can be difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees work! You're either a BS funnel or a BS umbrella :-)

    I worked at IBM as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    IBM is a great company to work with since they have a solid reputation for their brand at their client locations.IBM policies for employees are encouraging and they have a good work style.Having multi functional teams representing IBM, one can easily work with cross functional teams in achieving the overall objective of the assignment.As an individual,the brand name acts as a morale booster to work in their client locations personally

    Cons

    Team coordination with offshore teams has to be improved a lot and adapting to the client needs much faster using the company's experience needs major improvement in some areas of project management.Also the company should provide quality amenities at work place to keep their employees motivated to work create high quality products and services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate more funds to provide phones,desks,computer accessories to the employees deployed at client locations and implement methodologies to train managers to keep the team dedicated and focussed
