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

Pros

Formal training for new hires and the company reputation is great for fresh graduate to work for and enough chances to work at different places.

Cons

The salary is not competitive enough because of the hieararchy. The company is too hierarchical to connect with people in charge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care for the consultant.

    Former Employee - Program Director

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    good pay, strong respect for the individual, professionalism

    Cons

    rare manager that abuses power, usually nipped in the bud

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    revisit the end-to-end (net) value of chasing the lowest cost geography (global resources). A low cost country (LCC) doesn't remain so, and so constantly chasing the next LCC, including relocating or retraining, adds cost that defeats the purpose of a LCC
