    Pros

    Big company, many resources, lots of training opportunities

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on short-term results, quarter-end focus skews all work schedules and long-term planning; bureaucratic to the nth degree; stock options only for Band 10 and above, and most of the decisions are based on what it will do for/to the stock price; small or no pay raises, even for top performers;

    Advice to Management

    Walk in your employees shoes for a week--do you REALLY want to make THAT decision after you see how it affects them?


  2. 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.
