Graduates really don't get a good deal

Grads - Best to Quit After A Few Years Experience (Current Employee)

Pros1) Looks good on CV
2) Potential to work on different client sites
3) Meet some really decent people
4) Can get experience in different areas

Cons1) Salary is awful, with 3+ years experience, expect to be getting £500 more than new grads with no experience
2) PBC reviews encourage backstabbing, no loyalty to other colleagues
3) If you don't undertake 'giveback' (e.g. free work for IBM) you are penalised in the PBC reviews
4) If you only have 'average' utilisation and don't work for free, you are penalised in the PBC review

Advice to Senior ManagementYou spend thousands on the graduate program and want to get the best, yet once in IBM, the consultants don't seem to matter any more. Focus on retaining the employees you have with better development options and salaries that aren't in the lowest 12% of consultancy firms..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
