"A very fulfilling, family oriented company - they'll take care of you deliver"

Star Star Star Star Star
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

- Corporate Service Corp
- Intelligent people
- Exciting consulting engagement
- Global network access
- Leave of absence / sabbatical
- Well oiled machine

Cons

- Heavy on the administrative work
- Low bonus and annual pay increases
- 'In the dark' on a lot of processes
- Lack of 'belonging'

Advice to Management

Pay well to retain the talent. The bonus structures are dismal (GBS) and PBC ratings poorly incentivize hard work... I would prefer working 15 hours less a week and get 1-2K less in bonus vs. working those hour and getting 1-2K more.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    decent company, good programs. Stay away from W3, their internal web system. can be great, can be terrible as there is just WAYYYY too much information

    Cons

    too much classifications. everyone must fit within this specific category and your salary has little chance of increasing much once you max.
