    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible work hours, mega accounts, great experience, totally process driven, employee friendly policies,great cross cultural experience, great brand value

    Cons

    biased people managers, sycophancy and not hardwork wins promotions and good grades. there is an expectancy that an employee will spend money from his / her own pocket to do IBM business. no recognition of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a counter check on the people managers' powers - totally incompetent and undeserving candidates get grades and promotions. is management aware of this?

    make the redressal forum more accessible to teh employee. where does an employee go when he / she needs to report gross negligence of duty on the people managers' part? I was at a loss and so i quit the company in spite of all the benefits. in my case, i even brought it to the next level manager's notice - to no effect. both of them got grade progressions and promotions and left the account! Manager mafia??

    conduct exit interviews - i did not have one


  2. "Good place to start a career and learn the ropes"
