Pros

Provides a very good environment for work life balance - the support is just awesome. You also get to work with people of various calibers coming from diverse backgrounds.

Cons

It is a set of independant companies competing with each other. The pay is substantially below the local market, but is presented to you as if you are earning a few percentage points above the market value. Its a mystery where HR gets these figures.

Advice to Management

Employees are savvy enough to see beyond the facade that management raises. It would help resolve some of the issues plaguing the company by treating them as partners instead.

    Pros

    It is a job where most of work from any place.

    Cons

    IBM almost forces you to work from home, so they do not pay internet connection or office space rent. 55 hr work weeks are common and do not get vacation time when scheduled.
    Reduce employee count without realining duties.
    1% pay increase for 2+ performer and 2% bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth as the everyday employees are the ones who interact with customers. Money should be available for training. Stop purchasing other compainies products when we make the same thing such as storage, we have 3par and hitachi in inventory
