    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Bengaluru (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Bengaluru (India)
    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance: have your own business and get extra salary income without doing any work.
    You can stay at home as long as you want.
    Excellent for married woman, physically challenged people.
    If you are among despo L1 seekers you might get.

    Cons

    If salary is your only source of income then get out immediately.
    If you are looking for a career out of employment don't join.
    Dumb management, shady HR (these are two departments who have zero marketability, hence they can do anything to retain job).
    Educational background is last consideration for getting in.

    Advice to Management

    None, management doesn't exist.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/life balance is acknowledged more than most companies and there is huge scope for moving between business units. Good career move and great training options though. IBM finds it difficult to fire people who have a successful career record.

    Cons

    A consistent erosion of benefits packages over time at IBM. Poor benefit schemes. Little sales culture. Huge beaurocracy.

    Advice to Management

    A current employee earns £x, but the market rate for his salary is £x+20%. If he leaves, you'll need to replace him with someone from a competitor, who already earns £x+20%, so you need to offer him £x+40% to tempt him away. Wouldn't it have been cheaper, easier and more efficient just to pay the current employee the market rate salary?
