Helllo,

I want to join IBM but am scared of travel 80% or 100%. I want to be with my family when i come back home during weekdays.
I was thinking of joining IBM with below thoughts:
I will relocate for each project with family at least 1-2 years in beginning. Will keep minimum household stuff and move family along at my own cost. My wife and son(in middle school) are ok to move (and change schools) every 4-5 months.
I know it will be aditional exp to my pocket but i am fine.
Please advise:
(1) About my above thoughts. Any other option i have to keep family tagged to me.
(2) Once employed can i refuse short term projects say 2 months duration and say i need a project at least of 4 months.

Any feedback from IBM employee or ex will be apprecited. Thanks.
