It has been very frustrating working at IBM Global Business Services because it is devoid of true leadership

Pros

Great clients and interesting work

Cons

No leadership; partisanship/favortism is rife; limited opportunities for training; people managers are not true managers - mere administrators; employees are treated like criminals relative to the T&E process; horrible travel policies; WAY TOO MUCH bureaucracy and administrative overhead

Advice to Management

Value your employees and listen when they tell you something

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest The opportunity to gain knowledge/experience and learn to question every step is outstanding

    Cons

    EVERYTHING is a priority It's all about the cost ($$$$) The never ending EPS roadmap is killing morale with all the cuts, cuts, cuts Some members of senior management are absolutely off their rockers and thrive on power Do more with less is the mantra There is NO work/life balance, rather, IBM supports work/life integration. So while you can work from any remote location with an available internet connection, there is an expectation to integrate your life into your work.


  2. This is a fun and challenging place to work, with excellent colleagues.

    Pros

    We have a corporate culture with high standards for honesty and integrity. We have a wide range of interesting projects on which people can work. We have excellent colleagues that cooperate freely.

    Cons

    Corporate bureaucracy and the centralization ("Globalization") of business processes make it more difficult and time consuming to get those many little things done that distract us form the real work. Usability of business process tools is poor.
