No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

On whole IBM is a meritocracy. You will be treated and rewarded based on your contribution. This is not universal there’s a lot of hype about values and trust. These don't bear up to much investigation. IBM is also very politcally correct if this is problem or you can't handle it go somewhere else. Lastly is very complex and Bureaucratic
But if you can make your face fit and more importantly learn how to play the game you’ll be OK.

Cons

Very bureaucratic. constant reviews and pay and rewards aren't great

Advice to Management

Spend less time on conference calls. go and meet customers and your folks at the coalface

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Dealing with biggest customers in country; Good salary if a proper negotiation is done during recruting time; Many learning stuff avalable

    Cons

    Total lack of people cara from 1st and 2nd line manager, a total shame; Training is all based on employees self-effort - no company money spent even on IBM technologies; a *LOT* of bullying happening by people being manager but not ready for that

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to talents and monitor low level managers doing a complete mess within support teams
