Current Employee - Project Coordinator in Melbourne (Australia)

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Career opportunity, work variety, client exposure, some great experts in many fields, global opportunities, work life flexibility and ability to work anywhere, employee equality

Cons

Poor pay and difficulty having pay reviewed or updated within changed roles or positions, job insecurity, 'blue tape' and processes slowing everything down, poor reward and recognition efforts and team building programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Removing staff who are needed from positions that are then not backfilled, or replaced with inferior candidates (both on and off shore) makes working in a team very challenging, and reduces how much the remaining staff contribute.

    Current Employee - Product Manager
    Current Employee - Product Manager

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Involved in all aspects of the IT industry.
    Still do some great research
    Have a long history of success and some fantastically talented people... but that is waning

    Cons

    Cost cutting and uncertainty over what the company stands for is really hurting. Conservatism is catching up as well and newer, progressive organisations are taking over as the business becomes lost in red tape and siloed business units.

    There is a lot of middle management and not enough talented young staff being fostered through the company. Too many platitudes and too little action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your hard working talent, train them, know what you stand for or your best people will continue to leave despite the brand name.
