Former Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Poughkeepsie, NY

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity abound to be exposed to a lot about new technologies, learn about and share information with colleagues. Very flexible work / life balance.

Cons

The needs of the business can far out weigh your own needs, hence your career can suffer in lost opportunities to attend classes, speeches or seminars that would otherwise promote or further your intellect and career. The continuous resource actions that take place causes one to be distracted and lose focus of their work and thus lose interest and seek employment elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push your direct reports to attend classes and seminars to keep up with new ideas and technology trends where they apply.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    great talented colleagues, state of the art technology, regular interaction with colleagues within the industry through partnerships and business client relationships. Great life Balance promotion, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management, we depend on rumours, news paper reportings etc whereas if upper management was upfront with us most of us would understand that as a business certain decisions have to be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better incentive required to keep top employees motivated (promotions, salary increase)
