Pros

You can have chances to join in larger project. IBM has quite good management methodology. The company is managed with mature processes. Generally good colleagues, welfare also ok.

Cons

The role are specifically separated. It's not so easy to shift from role to role. And rather the company tends to look for resources in the market first.

    Pros

    Great for gaining experience
    Challenging work
    Diverse and global workforce

    Cons

    Salary, everyone knows it.
    The solution to every problem is to add an extra layer of bureaucracy to every process.
    Bad managers making rushed decisions that only help the short team, and completely disregard the long term.
    Customer satisfaction is not taken into account when cost cutting comes into effect. Same workload with half the people? No problem! The customer won't even notice it.
    Everything's rushed because unrealistic promises are made to the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting costs. Increase your profits by delivering a great service. Word will spread and you'll be signing contracts left and right.
    If you need to cut costs, seek to eliminate paperwork, not people.
