I have been working at IBM

Pros

- Flexible work schedule (I usually work from home on Fridays)
- Brand Recognition

Cons

- constantly putting consultants in a hole that needs to be filled instead of working to expand current role or knowlegde.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- after a year on a project, any consultant should be given the opportunity to stay or leave
- senior level consultants should not be moved into lead positions of a team if they cannot perform atleast one of the roles they are managing

    Pros

    Great public perception of the company. World wide operations with local presence everywhere. Fair treatment to newly acquired employees. Good work at home policies and technology that really helps the home worker

    Cons

    Too big. Business run by financial types stripping managers of choices in how to get work done. Way too much outsourcing to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less focus in building "management tools" and more effort in moving decisions closer to the customer!

    No opinion of CEO
