Pros

Good working environment.
Flexible timings.
Nice process outlined to manage your career within the organisation.
Trainings.

Cons

The 'worst' in terms of compensation compared to other organisations. Our effort is directly linked to billing, meaning if you did a good job in your project and your utilisation is not up to the mark, then your effort is, simply put...ignored. Too much of policy dose from the managers. Bragging about the past achievements and their brand image.

Employee referral is a complete catastrophe, no one ever has been placed in IBM referred by an employee..except may be by some managers. Everybody knows that HR and some consultancies have some 'illegitimate tie ups' and the only promote candidates from them. IBM is not transparent on this except for sending out repeated emails to its employees to refer candidates.

The following comments are specfically to managers/Sr consultants in IBM Hyderabad
- Managers in Hyd do not possess the capability to win over a customer, they cannot manage the careers of their employees, unprofessional attitude, hypocrites, encourage boot lickers, show bossism..and living examples I heard about are ....well..most of the managers :)
