    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great chance to learn.
    Stable workplace.

    Cons

    Extreme targets.
    Very few positive motivators.
    Low pay compared to same roles in different companies.
    Direct management (1st line) has no power of decision and seem to be brainwashed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. That's how you improve the quality of your service.
    You ask unimaginable efficiency targets to be able to save but you give 270 billion dollars retirement package to your ex CEO and invest 1 mill in his office...
    Value your "top talents" as you like to call them. They are the only ones that can keep a client from leaving as the sales people are not involved in the provider - customer relationship after the contract is signed.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good work environment
    -Flexibility
    -Work from home options
    -Good Incentives

    Cons

    -Unrealistic targets
    -Mismatch in Authority Responsibility relationships
    -Structure not defined clearly leading issues like some people are over burdened with work and some are having fun
    -Expensive Products not feasible for Indian Subcontinent as the stress is more on TCA and less on TCO
    -Highly rigid processes and procedures leading to lost opportunities
    -Extremely inefficient services team leading to customer dissatisfaction and lack of repeat business

    Advice to Management

    No organization is perfect however, given that we are talking about IBM with such comprehensive offerings we must definitely be more efficient and effective in capturing the markets. The stress should be on retaining the customers whom we are losing on a day to day basis
