    Current Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Sydney (Australia)
    Current Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Sydney (Australia)
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    career development opportunities, training opportunities available, level of professionalism across the organisation, flexible work options, employer of choice for women and people with disabilities

    Cons

    sometimes there are unrealistic expectations set on employees without their prior consultation.

    in cases where remuneration is not in line with market rates it's close to impossible to achieve re-alignment

    Advice to Management

    Remuneration policies that allow high-performing (2+) employees to be paid below market rates is basically a policy whereby IBM is providing world class training to their staff only to see them leave to work for competitors without seeing return on their investment
