Being a contractor
AV/Network Administrator/ Video Manager (Current Employee), Washington, DCOctober 29, 2014
Pros: we often get free lunches and neat gifts from our clients that visit often.
Cons: no benefits
Ive worked for this company for 5+ years. I am currently a contractor and have been made many promises of become a full time employee. My supervisor is wonderful and very understanding.

But within the last 5+ years we have changed managers 3 times and everyone has a different view of how things should work here. They have decided that they are not – more... hiring but cutting departments and cutting the budgets in the whole company. The hardest part of this job is not knowing when our briefing center will close for good. – less

COMPUTER OPERATOR (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAOctober 22, 2014

Challenging & rewarding position but unstable
Global Network Transition Manager (Current Employee), Home OfficeOctober 20, 2014
Pros: work from home / challenging projects
Cons: lack of stability
One of the great things about my job at IBM is that I am able to dig into a network transition project that typically lasts anywhere from 6 to 9 months, complete the implementation, hand it off to the steady state team for 'day 2' support, and move onto a whole new project with a whole new team and an entirely different scope of work. It has also provided – more... me with the opportunity to manage cross-functional project teams and third party vendors who are critical to the success of our deployments. The demands of the job force you to be a good time manager, and to manage your workload around a heavy meeting schedule. The most difficult part of the job though, is the uncertainty over whether or not that next project will be there to roll over too after I close out the current one... and if it is there, whether or not it will be fully funded. The potential of being furloughed or forced into a reduced work schedule has been an ongoing concern, which has worsened this year, especially because I am a contract employee. – less

Overall Great Company!!!
WW IT TRANSITION MANAGER, SOFTWARE GROUP (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCOctober 20, 2014
Pros: very talented and diverse network of professionals
Cons: overlapping demands from cross functional management
Challenging work environment where your only limits are those you set on yourself. You can become too involved and it WILL become your life; or you can learn to multitask, prioritize and carefully select your special assignments (lol).
