Not a place for growth for younger employees

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThey have a strong work from home culture.
As a global company there is a lot of opportunity to work employees from other countries.

ConsIn the group I am in there is zero budget for training, I haven't had training for over seven years.
The company is very top heavy with more managers than "doers".
The utilization rate is outrageously high, if you take your vacation you have to make it up with overtime otherwise you can not meet your utilization target.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow some appreciation for top rated employees. I am a "1" performer and don't feel any effort to retain employees like me has been made. If anything I feel like the higher my level has been the more I have felt the push to actually leave IBM.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
