    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues.
    Good flexibility (opportunities to work from home).
    Opportunities for career progression (at least in GBS Europe).
    Unlike other consultancies, an encouraging environment (not cut-throat).
    Top employees have opportunity to do a four week pro-bono consulting project in a developing part of the world!

    Cons

    A very big company so can be overwhelming to understand how it all fits together and the different HR functions.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Really friendly people the whole way though. I was fast tracked to the video interview after submitting my CV, completed that and was invited to the assessment centre the following week. Had a good experience there - very relaxed people helping us all through the process. We had two group tasks to complete and a personal one on one interview which was more like a chat through my CV and how it relates to the company. We also had time to ask current people in the CbD programme how they were finding it. I was lucky I think because we worked great as a group.

    I am now through to the next stage of the process, a skype interview with line managers.
