No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible work hours. You can change jobs without changing employer

Cons

Head count drives most of the things. Leadership lacks clear vision. Lack of ownership among senior leaders.

Advice to Management

Don't measure the things by head count. Give importance to domain and consulting

    Pros

    No pros. mmmmm....yes 1 pros is there:
    when you join the company you will get rs 25k as a bonus.

    Cons

    If any fresher will stay in this company for more than a year, he will ruin his/her career.
    No growth. First of all they will throw you at any location in India for training. Then you may get any competency on which you will be trained regardless of your skills. Training is also worst. Then after completion of training you will be assigned to a project in any location within India. You have to accept that offer otherwise you will have to leave the company. All good till this point if you accept the offer. Now when you go to the assigned location you will be on-boarded to the project. And now comes the shock. You come to know that the project which you have been assigned to has nothing to do with the competency in which you have got trained. Most of the projects in IBM GBS are support projects. Those people who love coding cannot survive here. And few projects in which there is some coding part, are assigned to non IT-Computer graduates.
    Now let's talk something about pay:
    During campus placement, package of 3.4 LPA is announced.
    In actual you will get only 22.5 K in hand. Combining all the benefits and variables which are part of salary structure, the total amount comes out to be 3.2 Lacs. Where did this 20 K go???
    There is a bond of 1 year. 1 Lac amount.
    Nature of work:
    Many projects have shift timings. You have to work in 3 shifts. Morning, evening and night.
    Although you will get extra allowances per shift.
    No work life balance. There will be no team outings, lunch, or fun.
    Much more negative points are there which I' am not remembering.. :P
    To sum up, this company is for those people who are about to retire, and do not want to work, just sit..

    Advice to Management

    Put right people in right projects,
    get right work done by right people.
