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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
