    Former Employee - Advisory IT Specialist in Detroit, MI
    Former Employee - Advisory IT Specialist in Detroit, MI
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Name recognition, access to a ton of free Computer Based Training to improve skills (for your next job), good medical benefits for employee (expensive for family)

    Cons

    Utilization targets to meet minimum review ratings require all PTO, holidays, and all other non-billable time to be made up with overtime. Endless layoffs of Americans to ship jobs overseas. Heavy time demand as you work full time at customer site plus any OT they will allow, plus 5 hours a week to follow IBM documentation processes. You may never physically meet the manger responsible for you reviews, only your project manager. High turnover in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    IBM needs to be more strategic in what it offshores. Cutting seasoned employees for very high turnover offshore resources causes project delays, customer dissatisfaction, SLA financial penalties, etc.
