IBM Global Services - what is it

IT Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsDecent medical coverage

You manage your work.

ConsMajor red tapes which equates to overhead and productivity
Huge overturned. Constantly training people. All most all position are offshored to India.
US SME's train India to take their jobs.
Constantly looking for new assignments or get on a "bench" and off the payroll. Most positions are 3-6 months term.
Overworked, no time for training; can not take long vacation.
No reimbursement for Internet access even though you work from home 100%.
Perform consulting works without consulting pay.
Can not plan for your future (big investment like buying a house) since there is no "job security"

Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to do the dirty works for other corporations who try do massive layoff without a bad PR for a small fee. Your dirty work and a quick paycheck affect thousands of people and their families. Most of my peers were hard working, knowledgeable employee. They were gone because you moved the work elsewhere to less capable people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
