    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    IBM provides a great learning enviornment and offers tons of people to meet. My schedule and working enivornment was very flexible and casual. Recognizes employees for good work.

    Cons

    IBM has too much corporate policies, which you must follow. In addition, the job was very stressful and the managers do not care how much or long you work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better training to employees, rather them putting them out in the wolves. It is hard for an employee to adapt.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    working with smart peers and smart technology
    travel opportunities
    training opportunities
    huge amount of support informaton

    Cons

    Salary and bonus is not great
    There is a very short-termist view of skills and resources. IBM tend to train or recruit once the work is signed and not build skills for long term.
    There is little choice iver what projects you work on - it depends on what projects are available when you are available. Again, there is not enough succession planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More long-term vision and planning in GBS. Look after your people and dont treat them as a commodity.
