No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Security, work life balance, skilling and training benefits. Large network of people and global.

Cons

Dealing with lower skilled people globally. Huge barriers in language, skill level and responsibility matrix. Frustrating.

Advice to Management

Less GDF movement. Ends up coming back anyway. Clear out the low performers, they have too many places to hide and for far too long.

    Pros

    Young multicultural environment, good place to start your career. Nice environment, not so crowded. Home office possibility available after 6 month.

    Cons

    You can not stay in the same position for years, you can not become a real expert because without changing position you can never earn more..

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to keep people after such trainings and not to let them go to concurrency.
