Global teams with different time zones, stability issue as resource actions are frequent.

Advice to Management

Give people managers more power to have inputs into resource actions and execution planning.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In my position there are no tight deadlines to speak of. Pretty laid back. Plenty of work to keep my busy, but not a lot of pressure to meet hard deadlines. I come from just the opposite so it's a huge difference for me.

    Cons

    Lotus Notes is terrible... I feel like it is the mid 90's. It's slow and buggy... I honestly could not stand using it if I was in my previous high pressure (and high email volume) job... Since my role at IBM is pretty laid back the lost productivity just means I get less done... but that's OK.

    Required use of Linux as a desktop for anyone with privileged access. I like Linux as a server and like the command line but hate it for desktop OS.

    Things can be slow to happen... like getting access to things or policy changes... etc...

    Advice to Management

    Make lotus notes work well, (i.e. be quick, responsive, and not buggy...) or move to a better email client... I can't imagine the lost productivity time multiplied by each of the 400k workers each year...
