    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work at home is great.
    Benefits are good
    I thought I would have more Pros, but there aren't any left.

    Cons

    Very long hours - easily work 11-12 hour days and still far behind in work
    Most work in my area moved to Brazil
    No time for education
    Constant threat of layoffs...every quarter. I'm just hoping I get it next and get it out of the way. I've probably skirted 8-10 of them already.
    Used to perform real analytical work, now we just comply to business controls, perform the minimal work necessary and that's it. No innovation or ...no time for it

    Advice to Management

    Give employees time to actually perform their work and do a good job. I sit in meetings for 6-7 hours a day. Useless....

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - Ability to switch and do something new every couple of years
    - Extensive training opportunities

    Cons

    - Salaries are not competitive
    - Lack of motivation and employees recognition from management

    Advice to Management

    Seams like management is using cost cutting as the only tool to get the numbers every year. This at the expense of Innovation and motivation, things that have characterized IBM through the years. If employees are well paid, and well treated and recognized there will be more productivity and quality as well as innovation. STG is too focus on numbers and not investing in the people. Turn things around and numbers will come. We have great products and professionals, motivate the professionals and treat them well. We will be making more business if we invest in the people that create the products, support them, teach them, and sale them.
