Pros

Excellent people, excellent training for technical task, professional skills and career, decent compensation, decent benefits, flexible work styles in-office or home-mobile, good sense of belonging, good opportunity for an on-going variety in job role for those interested in moving from one job type to another.

Cons

Too many internal meetings reduces time in front of customers, complex matrix management structure, lots of chiefs but fewer workers. Process and lots of administration surrounding almost anything. Expense cut-backs have greatly reduced management levers to maintain morale.

Advice to Management

Truly walk the talk. This company has great values, and incredible breadth in vision and capability, but not everyone lives up to them, or even tries very hard to do so.

    Pros

    Will set you free to do your work with the right tools and directions All the trainings you need ! Invest heavily in training very good policies - wfh, leave application Runs like a well oiled machine with all the rigth processes in place

    Cons

    Not a great pay master If you are caught in a internal India IBM project , you have to deal with a lot of attitude

    Advice to Management

    The freedom which is given to external customer facing project managers , please extend the same internally and that way reduce the egos and attitude issues inside. Account management team revolves around certain individuals which is bad - It should be also as transparent as the Project Management competancy


  2. Learning experience
