    Pros

    Extremely knowledgeable leaders, lots of opportunities, evaluations system is very good. Training is often given.

    Cons

    Bonuses are pretty bad as in all IT consulting firms, easy to get pigeonholed into something you don't want to do if you're not proactive about it. Lots of pressure to work very long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance needs more incentive to keep talent. High utilization is not always a good indicator as some projects have capped billing hours. E.g. You'll bill 40 hours a week but work 60 hours, and end up with bonuses for a sub par utilization.

    Very laid back company, with lot of inefficient work practices. Very Low productivity and huge waste of resources.

    Pros

    Good place for freshers, but if you get stuck to IBM's style of working, you are not going to fit in elsewhere. Once an IBM'er, always an IBM'er.

    Cons

    As the company is too big, they are trying to automate the workplace, but without considering the efficiency of its implementation. Too inefficient and lots of waste of time and money.

    Processes that were implemented long back, still remain though its not efficient.

    Work from home, entirely depends on your People Manager!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more planning and bring about optimized process, instead of a laid back process.
