Unless you remain politically connected to TOP management, you will be "released" through their semi-annual cut backs.

I have been working at IBM

Pros

Their perceived reputation in the Global Market.

Cons

Keep your NETWORK and resume up-to-date. You will be blind-sided when you least expect it. Mine came after 3 months of 80 hour conversion weeks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on QUALITY, not the bottom line. Look at supporting your originating country and those employees who have stuck by you. Measure by quality, not political connections. Management by "mind control" will not last forever.

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Knowledge-base available, industry expertise, benefits, training, and genuine team project structure.

    Cons

    Minimal to no bonuses, compensation is below industry average if non-experienced consultant, and too many sub par senior leaders. Additionally, as extensive as the knowledge base is, there is no easy or efficient means of accessing it or ever having the time to reuse the things that have already been done firm-wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reason most of the young talent (in one division) left in a year was due to poor partner-level management.
