Pros

The COE is a place where you can start your career, but it also is probably not the best place to make your career flourish.

Cons

There are very few chances for advancement within the COE, and most people who go to work at the COE are gone within 2 weeks.

    The last 10 years have been very disappointing and the work not satisfying.

    Pros

    IBM experience would help looking for a job with another company.

    Cons

    IBM fails to make appropriate investments in assets at the risk of exposing customers to sub-standard facilities and/or risk for the services provided.

    Advice to Management

    Many in management have financial backgrounds only, without technical expertise in the area in which they work. Often required investments are not made. But when the problem gets to a much higher level, you are asked how does this happen. Then at the annual evaluation you are told you did not contribute enough, hence a reduced rating. By forcing lower evaluations, IBM does not feel you merit a raise. The work expectations for a single individual often exceed what one person can possibly do, often requiring people to work 60 hour work weeks.


  2. IBM provided me with training and paid for higher education from which I continue to benefit!
