    Many opportunities, but you can get lost in the ocean

    Technical Team Lead (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsThere are many many opportunities whatever your interest may be, but one needs to pursue with aggressiveness and do a lot of homework to understand them.

    ConsThe policies are making it more and more difficult for genuine above average contributors to fall through the gaps and get lost in the complicated processes losing out on seniority for promotion and deserved salary hikes. The organization is saturated at the mid-management level and the management is using the bell-curve in exactly the manner it should not be - to avoid rewarding to the deserving.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromotions should be to those who deserve not those who can project themselves better in a promotion application package which in itself is a highly complicated system. Requires people to rate themselves on parameters which are not even part of of their KPIs. I started out with IBM as my dream company and left feeling cheated out of what I deserved. Hiring and firing is way more expensive than retaining good talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
