Pros

Global Opportunities Wealth of Knowledge - Diverse Experience Excellent work life balance

Cons

Internal Politics Poor Pay. No reward for hard work. Pathetic hikes No Distinction between high and low performer Too much power with the people manager Non existant HR

Advice to Management

Work to Reduce Office Politics Reduce overheads, let employees focus on work Better hikes and reward recognition HR should be available to personally interact with the employees

    Pros

    If you are a motivated, career orientated individual and want to be in the same place for many years - IBM is perfect. It provides the clear ladder to the top and has an obvious and simple promotion structure.

    Cons

    I entered as a graduate hire a couple of years ago. My training was poor to say the least. I was not given any training which was aimed at my particular role but instead I was trained with a group of fellow grads from across IBM (Sales, marketing, HR functions etc...) therefor the training had to be of a "lowest common denomenator" type standard where we learnt how to shake hands and answer a telephone. While I had almost 2 years of work experience and 2 degrees I was treated like a child for the first two years of work. Pay is also poor and the work life balance is fine unless you want to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and train better. Realise that high utilisation targets may bring short term profitability but do not create an environment in which people want to remain....
