Managing Consultant Title/Staff Level Work

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Managing Consultant in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Managing Consultant in Washington, DC
Approves of CEO

Pros

The benefits are outstanding and the "ability" to work globally exists. However, those opportunities are very few and far from reality.

Cons

In the DC area, the Federal clients expect you and your staff to roll up your sleeves and complete staff level work. Your salary will TRICKLE during your tenure.

Advice to Management

Please get rid of the current promotion process.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Stability? Perhaps. If you can routinely beat out at least 25% of your peers in performance, you can stay on with IBM indefinitely.

    Cons

    Process focus is extreme. This may be a lack of maturity on my part, but IBM spends what seem like inordinate amounts of effort in focusing on process instead of results.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bell curve distribution on PBC ratings or explain to your leadership that its a suggestion rather than a top down requirement.

    Pros

    Worldwide Expertise Have lot's of solutions (hardware, software, services) Opportunity to work around different areas

    Cons

    Burecratic Political Re-org every 6 month to year just for the sake of it Marketing hypes

    Advice to Management

    Reduce marketing hype Break down the political system within (someone worked for IBM for 20 years will never get fired.. he/she will always find a person who can give them a place to hide)
