No cab to male employees (don't know who took this decision)
No flexiblity in projects in GBS.
Favouritism too much.
Managers thinks they are boss and screw up many lifes.
Not suited for ppl willing to learn more. One should come here only after 7-8 yrs of exp.
Poor implementation by local Management.
No power to HR. If Management is poor you dont have any choice.

Advice to Management

Check out Favouritism, harrasement in teams which goes unnoticed. Some means should be kept to check misuse of powers by leads and managers

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

    Pros

    Working for IBM is working for one of the most innovative and successful technology leaders, who is around for over 100 years by now. The brand name is established well and their smarter planet initiative reached beyond the technology savvy audience. Inventions such as IBM Watson excites not just geeks and science nerds, but society. All in all IBMers are proud to work for the "Big Blue".

    Cons

    IBM is to big to even know what the company is doing all over the world, as a "regular" employee at least. Many internal processes and tools are used to run - to many for some. Products and services sold could be easily used inside IBM, but I guess to implement things at a worldwide level and such a diverse scale of employees and management takes time.

    Advice to Management

    As in any large cooperation there are bits and pieces (mainly processes) that could be improved, discontinued or introduced.
