    Former Employee - IT Consultant in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - a good name to have on the CV
    - a good place to network and meet new people - and then leave like everyone else does

    Cons

    - Resourcing managers make your life hell when you are on the bench and try to push you on whatever project suits them without asking your opinion or considering your personal circumstances
    - arrogant (micro-)managers with big egos who are full of themselves and expect to be sucked up to
    - no work-life balance; you are expected to put your life on hold
    - number of hours you spend at work matters (face time culture), not the results
    - regardless of what they tell you IBM DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ITS EMPLOYEES
    - rigid and hierarchical organisation
    - they only win projects because of their brand and size, but customers are rarely satisfied due to poorly delivered work by offshore resources
    - bad reputation as an IT software implementation partner

    If you are a senior consultant IBM UK Global Business Services is not a good place to work. Don't waste your time, go somewhere else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people better and be less arrogant. You think that you are something special as you work for IBM but you are not.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
