    six month quotas and unrealistic objectives make this a burn out job with limited opportunity for long term career growth.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Corporate programs for work flexibility, benefits, good learning place for interns

    Cons

    Those corporate programs are not available to all, work load/targets are usually unrealistic, salary increases/bonus have not kept up with inflation for the last 10 years and show no signs of doing so going forward, no career progression in several areas after band 8 -- and the continual off shoring of jobs means you have no job security. Ratings are a quota system, not rating of performance. High level of employee burn-out under the current politics

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN when we tell you what is feasible and what is not, treat employees as people instead of numbers on a spreadsheet, overhaul the rating and salary systems to actually rate people on their performance instead of a quota system and make sure salaries at least keep pace with inflation every year. Be honest and open about what is being done - in terms of work, methodologies, hiring, everything. Most of all, change the attitudes of management and executives to value employees instead of treating them as commodities
