    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home. Working on different customer accounts.

    Cons

    Inefficient, highly process-driven. Focus is on reducing costs above everything else. No pay rises ever. Low morale. No reward and recognition. PBC process forces you to compete against your colleagues instead of collaborating with them. Layers and layers of managers managing each other. Service delivery managers move jobs so often, you can't keep track of them. Share options only for senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the hated PBC process. Cost of living pay rises every year.

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

    Pros

    None i have experienced so far

    Cons

    Most of the things said about IBM are all false and it is NOT at all a Great Place to work. Flexibility for women is only in policies, in real when you ask them (some person called people manager) for flexibility, it is said that "it all depends on the project and your project manager, there is no concept like flexibility in IBM". Horrible place, no professionalism, no work ethics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The surveys that you conduct, please pay attention to what is being said in those survey's. Also do not keep things only in policies, imply them too
