Current Employee - Managing Consultant

I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Great work/life balance
Pretty much allowed to be yourself - good autonomy
Reasonably varied work (sometimes)
Can be interesting if all your ducks fall into line and you have a good team working on a good project

Cons

Huge administrative overhead
Lots of incompetent people
Perverse incentives created by poorly thought out performance metrics
Feel like an employee ID number, not like a person
Too much bidding for work that we want to win, not that we can do

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Looking up there is little to inspire me

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
