      Current Employee - Senior Workday Consultant 

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      When you're not traveling, the schedule is very flexible and promotes work-life balance. The culture is laid back and friendly.

      Cons

      Management is disorganized and effort is not rewarded. It is difficult to move ahead as requirements and expectations are vague, and there is no promise if you surpass goals that there is personal benefit or career growth.

      Cons

      * Zero career growth. Your career will die here if you let it. IBM loves to pretend that you have a future with them. They have its managers hold these things called 'Career Conversations', and these serve as just ways to fool you into thinking that they care about your career growth when in fact this is not the case. It's just...

      Advice to Management

      Stop pretending that everything is alright. Your 'One Cloud One Support' policy is a joke. Your engineers hate working here, and it's all your fault.
