Good starting job.

Systems Compliance Services (Current Employee)
Dubuque, IA

Pros- Good entry-level opportunity
- Infinite wealth of knowledge available to absorb
- Very flexible hours

Cons- Extremely difficult to move up or leave a department (you can be a victim of your own success and as a result, doors can be closed for you)
- Hostile review process promotes cut-throat environment with peers (If everyone in your team cures a different type of cancer individually, one of you will still get fired for under-performing in comparison with your peers)
- TOO MANY PROCESSES (sometimes you need to create a process to follow a process that has been created to conform to a different process)
- Too many levels of management. Upper level management never knows what's going on.
- Some divisions of IBM are so badly managed that the turnover rate is over 60% (GTS for example)
- NEVER WORK AT A GDF

Advice to Senior ManagementCut layers of management by half and invest more in employee satisfaction There's no reason we need 15 levels of management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
