Great people. Terrible Executive Management

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at IBM as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGreat colleagues who are willing to go the extra miles or two to achieve, sometimes unrealistic goals, set by business and executives. Flexible work hours. Since you VPN in, you can work from different state or even country as long as you have internet and phone.

ConsThe management has been going from bad to worst. Constant layoff which is not based on performance. Poor communication. No growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no failure in business but only failure in leadership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
