Pros

looks great on resume great brand name flexible work hours for some people in some roles your girlfriends parents will be impressed (but she likely won't be)

Cons

pay is poor, below market the red tape is ridiculous every decision takes 10 reviewers & 20 approvers + Finance & HR to review it all again

Advice to Management

Don't try to fool staff, try instead to clearly explain what the strategy is in real language, not MBA in Marketing speak. Resist the urge to outsource everything - instead try investing in the people you have here. If there are no jobs at home there will be no demand for what IBM sells.

    Pros

    Provides way to interact with best minds. Career development mentors help you a lot specially when your a fresher. women employees enjoy extra benefits.

    Cons

    Working in a big company made me feel lost in the pool after few months. Sometimes work from home option is taken too lightly by employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please have means to recognize talented employees. Not everyone is being given due recognition. Managers are being biased to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show a bit more appreciation to employees. Treat them like team members ( co-workers ) and please don`t take them for granted. Be more open. It does not send good signals, when the firms share price goes and the commission goes down at the same time.
