    Pros

    looks good on CV - IBM does have a good brand image Possible choice of roles (if you actually get a response)

    Cons

    You have to find yourself a role in IBM or sit on the bench Lack of communication with managers and senior execs when you have the skills needed to deliver projects to clients Its not what you know its who you know. Large unresponsive organization Resource managers do not help with role allocation there is no work life balance - its a IBM only Balance No support for new starters - sink or swim mentality

    Advice to Management

    Create processes to support your employees, help them grow their career as it will be beneficial to the business in the long run by keeping retaining their knowledge Look at work life balance - while some employees may want to travel and not have a social calendar other do want this. Be honest and truthful on how the employee finds work for themselves or be on the bench. Explain the bench and how this affects utilisation and career opportunities if your on it too long

    Pros

    Big oversights, opportunities, people, languages, travel, redeployment, consideration, learning contents, acquisitions, maturity, big deals, mega deals, bonus, mega bonus, what else?

    Cons

    Flexibility == chaos; travel == disorder; internal procedures == slow motion; big deals == conflicting interests; family == no promotion; conducting rules == ethics in theory... A nightmare!

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider Talent Management; people leaving a company after an acquisition is usual, and hard to understand.
