    Pros

    • Very good collaboration opportunities • Freedom to innovative things • They encourage vision

    Cons

    • Most of the people are superficial (not technically sound). • Management acknowledges your vision and goes ahead with it but does not let you complete it citing cost-cutting, etc and starts scraping tools. • Appraisals are ridiculous only your manager rates you. Managers have perception and then no consideration given to innovation (IP's), publications. They always say there was not enough work done or enough interaction with customer. No quantification only qualitative information. • Management pushes you to perform impossible tasks with a standard viewpoint even though there are better quicker ways of obtaining results • Too many levels of management • You are always sneered upon by IBM research. • No far-sighted vision and too much politics. • Workers are technically sound then the managers.

    Advice to Management

    • Please get rid of multiple levels of management • Hire managers who are experienced in the area and not somebody who comes from a totally different area. • Don't be stubborn about your vision and sneer at others. • Be open to ideas and think out of box of your employees. • Please adapt 360 appraisal.
