Pros

- Safe local bank to work. - good work life balance.

Cons

- compensation is not good compared to other MNCs. - For new joiners its a struggle to learn as no documents are available or not shared by seniors. - No training given to new joiners and is expected to learn everything themselves. - Processes are not properly defined which makes things very difficult to achieve. Takes a very long time chasing/following up people to deliver the work.

Advice to Management

- Please define the processes clearly for everyone. Performance management is not made clear to employees. - Compensation can be better.

    Pros

    It's a typical banking environment that does well on the customer front but not much on the employees front. If you are in a 'good' deparment with less politics and good people to look upto, you will turn out fine. Else..

    Cons

    Since IBM owns and manages the infrastructure, it is too bureaucractic and ladden with too many procedures that it beats the purpose of having procedures in the first place. Even to set up a non-production user ID, for example, needs several rounds of approval and takes more than a few days.

    Advice to Management

    In a few departments, managements keep changing leaving less time to stabilize. There are a few IT departments where majority of the staff are contractors (external) and Management is not keen on converting them. Instead they don't mind getting new staff onboard resulting in resentment and demoralizing.
