Pros

A lot of job opportunities, good for starting a career. Your happiness will greatly depend on the particular position you'll end up in. However be careful, most jobs in Bratislava are just copying excel sheets from one to another. The only thing you'll learn in these positions is how to live in a super-formalized environment.

Cons

Once you learn how to do your simple daily tasks, you will become constrained by IBM formal culture. The company in BA is everything but innovative (e.g. still using office 2003 if you can get your hands on one) and it is hard to come up with initiatives. But, again, this all depends on the position you're in. I would not recommend doing a career in IBM's International Services Centre.

    Pros

    Work place freedom is the best thing
    Work life balance is quite appreciable

    Cons

    Slow processes, poor HR and management

    Advice to Management

    Please dont give too much power to a single manager, employees at lower level feel locked in their hands. HR department is not at all helpful
