Current Employee - IT Specialist

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

allows for flexibility in how time is worked

Cons

no salary increases, want you to exceed 60hr/wk to maintain targets and yet somehow maintain work /life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are painting everyone with the same brush, a single work oriented person can work 24 hours a day, but a parent of young children cannot be pushed that hard and still be able to enjoy thier family

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of job opportunites to avail of within the company. Not necessary to constantly stick to the same role.

    Cons

    Very difficult to progress upwards. If you're working in an area that isn't recognised then you won't be recognised. It seems the only solution is to find somewhere else to work.
