Long exhausting hours

Systems Specialist (Former Employee)
Armonk, NY

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou don't need much experience. Lack of certifications in any product /technology was never an issue. Great company for recent grads with no experience.

ConsCertain IBM positions entail working long exhausting hours. Very little training if any. In my opinion, after the company requested and received US bailout money, the number of US positions that were lost to India increased.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome managers are great, some are not. My advice to Mgt is to learn from the managers that command respect. Poor Managers find it hard to be loyal to US Support, but those are the people you manage and should care about. Emerging markets should be secondary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
