    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Job autonomy is probably the best part of this job. Pay is adequate and work/life balance is probably the best in the industry. .

    Cons

    Many of the projects are not really "Strategy" and more based around implementation. If you want real strategy consulting go to BCG or McKinsey

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Got amazing learning experience out of it and is great on resume. People worked with were great and keep in touch still.

    Cons

    IBM is a cost recovery business where utlization is their number one focus. Management did not care that the staff were putting in long hours and there is not a work life balance. Expect resource crunches and can pic up other people's work then not compensated. One will put in long hours with unrealistic expectations. There are high demands and no management support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to realize their is a big retention issue and needs to improve on retaining staff. When it is a revolving door with more going out then in that is not a good sign. It is unfortunate when you resign that offered more money and promotion which is an insult.
