Great company in a state of change

Managing Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsWide range of opportunities and projects, good personal support and good knowledge management. Training is stil quite good, with regular online and classroom training. IBM has so far avoided wholesale redundancies, although there have been very quiet offers made to selected staff.

ConsBusiness controls are complex and bureaucracy is stifling. Recently the management has implemented new policies on pensions that have upset a large proportion of the staff. Salary increases have been virtually non-existent for the past couple of years and bonuses have been poor even for top performers.

Advice to Senior ManagementRelearn that the commitment of staff is important to the success of the business and stop alienating them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
