Quit managing in the short term

Development Manager (Current Employee) Poughkeepsie, AR

ProsMany opportunities if you want to travel. Working directly for a client can be rewarding.

ConsMany opportunities, BUT you have to travel. There is really no work-life balance. If you are supporting commercial clients, the clients come first above everything else. If you are in the I/T side of the business, you have no work-life balance. The 100% expectation is to be "on the road". Nothing else matters and there is no sympathy from exec management. IBM has spun the media on this and it is beyond me why the covers do not get blown off on this issue.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit offshoring talented workers. You are killing the company in the long run.

    Advisory IT Architect (Current Employee) Research Triangle Park, NC

    I have been working at IBM

They want to replace all of their American employees with offshore resources. … Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your tech people. There is entirely too much management going on. Things need to get done, instead they are managed. … More
