Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL (US)

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

Pros

Plenty of opportunities to gain skills and grow a great career.
Internal access to lots of resources and a decent mentorship program provide options for personal development.

Cons

Sometimes the size of the corp can be daunting.
Need lot of self motivation to get anything accomplished.
For essentially an IT organization the internal help desk is strictly a self service model.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage finding a buddy or make sure your first line managers are well training in the soft skills

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes upper management does not really know all personnel strenghts and rely on third person assesements as to their carrer, rather than their preference and habilities.
