Pros

Great Brand recognition. Limitless online classes available. Generous travel reimbursements.

Cons

Not a supportive work environment for entry level employee's. No structured mentoring program. Annual performance appraisals are conducted by a manager who you will likely never meet and only speak with once each month.

Advice to Management

Take the time to develop new hires. Most candidates hired by IBM are bright, put them in a situation where they have an opportunity to be successful.

    Pros

    Excellent environment to gain and expose skills in varied parts of the business. No one need feel as though they are placed in a niche work environment- never to entertain other viable options (including world wide assignments) within organizations.

    Cons

    Lack of focus by management to recognise employee skills levels and assist placing them in appropriate roles within organization. Need to stop the 24x7x365 work day demands.

    Advice to Management

    There is a place for everyone in IBM - use your vast reach, world wide to place employees and businesses that ensure better employee retention while providing revenue; instead of "excising" employees to demonstrate better operational profits.

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - Ability to switch and do something new every couple of years
    - Extensive training opportunities

    Cons

    - Salaries are not competitive
    - Lack of motivation and employees recognition from management

    Advice to Management

    Seams like management is using cost cutting as the only tool to get the numbers every year. This at the expense of Innovation and motivation, things that have characterized IBM through the years. If employees are well paid, and well treated and recognized there will be more productivity and quality as well as innovation. STG is too focus on numbers and not investing in the people. Turn things around and numbers will come. We have great products and professionals, motivate the professionals and treat them well. We will be making more business if we invest in the people that create the products, support them, teach them, and sale them.
