    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Met some great people and there is a sense of community in the sector that I am in which is much different than alot of other sectors within the consultant structure at IBM

    Cons

    1. Project Availability - Very tough to get onto projects without establishing some sort of experience with senior management 2. Experience - Work does not feel that stimulating or rewarding at times 3. Project Success - It seems more often than not that ambitious projects fail or fall through while the boring mundane ones with no real hard skills needed are the ones that IBM is selling for

  3. "employment"

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Their job descriptions are great. If you like to have your job description to say amazing things, this is the place for you (unless you're actually interested in the content of the actual role)

    Cons

    Dinosaur culture. Almost everyone you will meet working at IBM started their careers at IBM and there is a reason for that. The employees or senior management don't really have exposure to the real world and they just don't know how bad the place is. Things like the lack of coffee or proper drinking water for employees do not bother these people because they haven't seen any better. The place is a dump. Culture is awful...

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people in your job descriptions. Put this company out of its misery already, break it up and sell it before it becomes completely useless.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Office culture, benefits, training, lifestyle

      Cons

      There's so many management changes its difficult to build a relationship

      Advice to Management

      Stop quitting in the middle of the year! Fiscal responsibilities have turned the company into a money laundering scheme filled with ridden fruits and vegetables.

      no salary increase or very tiny Even excellent performers, the promotion is tiny while IBM is making record money Limited promotion possibilities need to be a ass-kisser

      Advice to Management

      Pay more attention to all folks instead of selling folks only stress more on hard skills and soft skills instead of soft skills only
