People showing off with unnecessary and boring meetings and meetings and meetings... When everything can be explained in a 2-min email.

Try to get rid of the non-important meetings, people actually want to work!

    Pros

    - A good place to start your IT career.
    - And a good place to get IT Education (at least it was during my time there 2011-2013).
    - Learn the hard way doing repetitive tasks.
    - Learn how enterprise level work is done and learn to communicate with various teams.

    Cons

    - Worst management i've ever had.
    - People managers are anything else but people manager, more like budget managers.
    - Family and relatives come 1st principle, and most of the promotions are based on that.
    - Chaotic behavior coming from unskilled people, not know what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Have some or rather more than some, people management education. And people skills lessons. Stop promoting people from 1st level IT technicians to management levels just because they are old enough in IBM. It does more damage than you think.
