      Pros

      Owned by IBM so you have the feel of a small company but the resources of IBM

      Cons

      Small consulting arm with much too much turnover. Not a career but a pitstop.

      Pros

      The leaders at this company know what they are doing, and more importantly how to execute.

      Cons

      As in any fast paced company be ready to have things thrown at you early in your career - you'll get as much responsibility as you are willing and able to process

      Sep 10, 2020 - Senior Consultant

      Pros

      Pro are IBM has enough money to make sure your paycheck doesn't bounce during COVID and that IBM will continue to fund "grease" the squeaky wheel with little regard for long term cost or benefit.

      Cons

      The biggest con is that during the transition and troubled times, leadership has become more of a dictatorial style of leadership vs. empowering business units and teams to self organize and work towards a common goal. In turn, this has caused those with power to act like despots, often throwing around the expressions, "it could get you exposure to leadership." and "some people would just be happy to have a job." when asking junior employees to "volunteer" to help on their pet projects. The next con, transparency. There is little to no transparency on anything other than, if you are billable, you must submit a time sheet with 40 hours every week or else you end up on a list. Given the above, it is the only real way to get the attention of leadership. The lack of transparency has broken down trust, which has lead to a breakdown of any resemblance of an actual organization. Who's in charge - not clear What are our goals - unknown How do you get promoted - apply elsewhere Like before mentioned the only known it submit a time sheet that adds up to 40. That and, "someone is working on it." Finally, would say the long term outlook is not positive, because they have managed to cripple upward momentum and mobility. Employees are given false promises that if they do XYZ they can move into another position or be promoted. Only, at the end of that process to be told there is a "freeze" for that role or opportunity. Then 6 months later they announce an "exciting new hire" for that role. Who, ultimately is more of the same mentioned above. Incompetence breeds incompetence! As long as you submit 40 hours on that time sheet, would recommend any additional time be used to look for opportunities elsewhere. Which is unfortunate, because at IBM there are thousands of opportunities, yet no one really knows how to transition into those positions. Everyday is like living a Greek Tragedy. And the issues are not related to COVID, these issues were there before COVID, though now they have a scapegoat.
