    Enriching from knowledge point of view but pathetic for the people angle.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    IBM Research and global teams are excellent.We primarily have a grid system in which all the industries, sectors, service line and team merge to bring out a unique value proposition for the organisation and client all around the world. Also given that we have expertise and next generation solutions for each sphere of business, one tends to grow deep skills and expertise specific to their job or roles.

    Cons

    Nobody cares about creativity, people management or even allowing flexibility. Its just based on who your boss is and he/she can either ruin or help you move up the career path regardless of how much or how effectively one works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to come down from their ivory towers and start paying attention to folks who actually drive the business. Too much politics within the system it will erode the company finally. Also people are not slaves..
