    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.

    Pros

    fosters innovation, good work ethics, if team is good then IBM is the best place to work in, opportunity to work with some of the best minds of the industry

    Cons

    less effort is spent on how to balance work with life. sometimes managers are irrational and their demands cannot be satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be lenient to people who wants to work hard.....and recognize hard worker not by the number of hours they spend in the office.
