ACN vs IBM GBS ? Better pay offer at IBM ? Should I take it ?

Been at 3 clients where they complaining about IBM cutting corners. They price low and it shows.

IBM in turmoil throughout. Use caution

IBM is a nightmare to work with

IBM is very bottom heavy currently... if for a middle manager role, IBM is your best bet

I agree. I’m in the current Consulting by Degrees program. 9 months in, but I’m leaning towards a change to a different firm

Ask ACN to match your office. If you have the skill/have good relationship. They will match it
