    Pros

    Great work atmosphere and collaboration with internal and external procurement teams. In spite of management's great focus on co-location , working hours are still flexible. We can work 2 days a week from home. Great place to work!

    Cons

    There are challenges to reach the right person sometimes due to the huge size of the organization. But people are great in helping locate the right resource to get the job done.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of learning and growth opportunities. The role had a lot of responsibility for my level and I got to interact with people from all levels in the company. There was a lot of flexibility in my team in terms of work hours and working remotely.

    Cons

    The work can get repetitive and the pay wasn't the most competitive. It can get stressful around quarter end and year end but that's normal with this type of position and there weren't a lot of days where I had to stay late.

    Advice to Management

    One thing that could be better is having more structured or organized activities to encourage team building. There were a few events per year but having more would definitely be good.
