Flexible workplace but not the greatest pay or hours.

Pros

Pretty flexible work times, except if you have to work with ibmers overseas you have to use your personal hours, dinner/breakfast time to be on calls with different time zones. No personal time available anymore. Work comes in waves. When it's busy it's really stressful. We are finally starting to hire some new hires and new blood into the company. Still pretty top heavy and hard to move up.

Cons

It seems like our budget for anything is smaller and smaller every year when we are reporting record profits. Healthcare benefits aren't great. A lot of out of pocket costs. They are outsourcing a lot.

Advice to Management

Our management upto 3rd line is doing the best they can.

    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.
