    Pros

    Super smart engineers. Super secure design. Hybrid of IaaS and PaaS and SaaS which is ideal for many clients. Work environment is very professional. Some very smart project managers. You will be happy to work for this company.

    Cons

    With cloud services the clients must actively manage security controls for how they access the information and services. There needs to be more awareness, education, straight-talk about this.

    Advice to Management

    Top-heavy. If performance can't be measured against revenue generation/preservation then consider reduction or re-alignment of activities. Get lean. Managers that are rude need to be let go no matter how good they are because perception of performance is usually false and overall progress is diminished. Hire outside consultants to advise on strategy or structure.

    Pros

    The pros include the people. Great people to work with and partner with. Paid time off is excellent, as is the compensation and the benefits program.

    Cons

    The challenge is working for a German company and being micro-managed by the Germans. T-Systems is a German company operating internationally versus a global company based in Germany which makes a huge difference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Working environment is very flexible until many staff also not really have the attitude to work

    Cons

    Company are paying low and employer are not really care about the employee. Too much changes in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    The midset of the Management need to be more focus on the employee as too much employee resign from this company.

    Pros

    Great vacation time, healthcare benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    They are misleading. They over work you. Expect you to do the job of 3 people. They could care less about not having a family life. Forget about getting a proper training if you're a new employee. They ignore customer complaints until it's too late. There is a lack of leadership from management. I've seen employees leave and instead of hiring a replacement they like to tack on the responsibilities to an existing employee. The only way to move up in that company is all about who you know. Definitely not because of your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Leaving advice is a waste of time. It's not like they're really going to listen and actually turn things around. Sending out an email letting us know about lay offs in the next two years says it all.

    Pros

    Little overtime, decent pay, understanding on days off needed.

    Cons

    No consistencies or thought out foresight on how to achieve mission goals. Everyone, particularly upper management, flies by the seat of their pants hoping they are doing the right thing, proving to not be equipped with the knowledge necessary for efficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Think before doing. Increase proactivity to decrease reactivity. Employees have lost their respect for upper management a long time ago for valid reasons. Remember, it starts at the top.

    Pros

    None, zilch, zippo....oh, they have a really nice office at Rockefeller Center. Who cares! Not the employees! Ya, all the US staff told no raises but you can visit our fancy office.

    Cons

    Where does one begin? Want a divorce? Work at T-systems. Your work life balance will become non-existent. All work...no balance! 24/7 no matter what is going on in your life. Graduations, forget about it. Anniversary, not going to happen. Family get togethers, no way. An actual weekend to be with your spouse, family, kids mow the lawn...out of the question. The upper Management in Germany live in a constant crisis mode Corporate all want to be chiefs. The in fighting is insane. Red tape, they invented it.

    The upper crust of T-systems doesn't care if you have been awake for 24to 36 hours straight they will work you to within an inch of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. If you don't let your employees have some kind of work/life balance with their families they will simply find another company to work for.
