Pros

Great learning ground...if you can unearth the offerings. Varied projects, self determination.

Cons

Travel can be an issue. Certain groups are not cohesive in strategy. It's who you know that determines success and many languish in bands without promotions or increases for years. Can be frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many good consultants and managers lost due to myopic focus on bottom line and not investments in people.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I truly can think of of none right now.

    Cons

    If you have an IT issue, a daily occurrence, they won't let you call someone. You have to do a web chat. NONE OF THOSE IDIOTS KNOW ANYTHING. So they tell you to put in a work ticket. That takes 3-6 days. I do not have three to six days to not be able to read my email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to lose talent because you care NOTHING about us. We are cogs in your giant machine.

    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)

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
