Pros

Many opportunities for women who have families and are not flexible with hours.

Cons

Sometimes too old fashioned in thinking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more junior staff involved in planning and decision making as they can bring new thoughts and ideas not previously explored.

    Pros

    a) Good locality project may be in Hinjewadi or Hadapsar.
    b) Whoever joins IBM, they create a new PF account....you have to tell to previous orgnation to transfer to this newly created PF account.
    c) Lots of processes.
    d) You have to do documentation work and evidence related things to file for PFA (for promotions).
    e) Offer letter sent by post, which usually takes one month to come.
    f) ECTC contains IBM variables component, which hardly paid to employees....especially in GBS.
    g) Before 2 years tea was free but you have to pay for tea also.
    h) Life in IBM depends on your People Manager and most of the time your People Manager use to be your project Manager. If he is good then enjoy else cry.
    i) No HR manager concept....you will not see HR in your tenature in IBM (except while joining or violations).
    I know this section are to write positive points but positive points are also having some negative side. So highlighting that area also because most of the people has already given positive side of that very clearly.

    Cons

    a) Releaving period is 3 months time.....so no company would take interest in hiring because if you apply for job outside then other company cannot wait for you for 3 months. If other company give notice period of 3 months then it will have fear that you will find another job in this 3 months and will not join.
    b) Salary majorly goes into Basic and Variable.......While variable is paid once in a year......Generally it is 0% and usally if lucky not more than 10%.
    c) If you are coming from some company where your CTC was 6 Lakh and you joined here with package as 8 Lakh then this extra 2 Lakh will go in variable and you will get the same salary here which you was getting in previous company.
    d) Notice Period: 3 months notice period, if you resign then they will tell you to work on Sat and Sund till completion of 3 months.
    d) For promotions you have to do the documentation work. Which is very pathetic and you have to fill it in short amount of time ( 1 week). If missed then next year.
    e) Promotion chances are very less.
    f) From 1 year experience to 8 years experience people they are giving Band 6B. So if joining on Band 6B then see you will be having the same level as people having 1 year of experience.
    g) Mostly projects are in Maintenance and work life will be terrible.
    h) CEO gets 40% hike but what employees are getting hike please check with them.
