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


    Cutting edge technology in some divisions, solid values, the usual big company benefits, exposure to world-wide coworkers, change is a constant.


    GTS is a complete mess. Executives are scrambling trying to make thing meet expectations that are unrealistic and there is never a mention that the goals could be wrong. There is a complete lack of tools, test environments, reporting, and automation. All of GTS is run on Excel.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the folks who do the estimates. They have been wrong for more than a decade. Get some automation for internal use and start eating your own dog food.
