    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    I worked at IBM ISSC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's name is big enough to neogotiate with next employer. Other than this I can't really recall something really good.

    Cons

    Stock price is the company's only value, no matter how nicely it cheats its employees and clients. Managers and executives from Malysia, HK and TW are truly bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending and admit IBM is nothing but a big bank & locust.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Budapest (Hungary)

    I worked at IBM ISSC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are lucky and have a half-way competent manager then it is not that bad.

    Cons

    Management does not stick to promises, base salary extremely low, working conditions poor, employee review (PBC) is everything but objective, rules are not kept and basic health and safetey rueles are unknown. No career path except teamleader or manager, attrition rate of 30 - 40% reflects conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to develop a culture and keep commitments - act like IBMers do instead of Center staff.
