Way too much internal processes, procedures, business controls, audits, private interests ...

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

+ Great team and internal cooperation

Cons

- Management did not keep their promises
- Management betrays trust
- Zero attention of how the staff feels, if there are problems HR dept. can only record it - but not react to it
- Almost no salary increase and promotion in the last 3 years
- No recognition from management side
- HUGE amount of internal processes, procedures, regulations, business controls reviews, audits. In the same time country & above country management expects the numbers to be delivered regardless of the excessive administrative overhead
- HUGE above country structure with a lot of people overlapping their roles and responsibilities
- Interests of the company are not defended - all possible transactions are pushed through "Business Partners", direct business is deeply unwanted and all local management is avoiding it
- And many more ... but those were the most important topics that irritated me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign ASAP and let this company move forward
