No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Excellent work/life balance
Great people to work with, innovative and helpful
Abundance of information available, manuals, education, company is like a massive university, can learn anything and everything from IT to Business.
Great career opporunities within local center.
Global teams means working across countries.

Cons

Poor local management, some what like school children, some manager are definitely not qualified to be people managers.
Way too much emphasis on cost cutting, no corporate gifts, no coffee machines, there is not even a cup of instant coffee available. Not motivational incentives.
Attrition is handled very poorly and no attempt to retain talented people.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good name to have on CV.
    Learn Oracle and Accounting skills.
    Money ok with paid extra hours.
    after one year doing the same thing you get bored. time to move out.

    Cons

    Extra hours too many. They dont hire enought people and you have to work like a slave.
    No control of extra working hours. In the team who want to stay to make money stay...
    Extra hours can make environment within the team bad...
    Team Leader was the most disgusting person I have ever meet in my life. It was a lesson for the future...

    Advice to Management

    don't treat people as machines. pay attention to TL behaviours.
