Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at CSC full-time

Pros

My supervisors have been excellent. They are responsive, available and interested in my development. To my mind, all large companies are essentially the same and completely dependent on the people... which surround you.

Cons

It's age distribution is surprisingly old for a technology company. They are taking immediate steps to remedy this with the graduate program. The company could also use more women, but this is a... problem across the industry, particularly in more technical roles

Advice to Management

I find the management structure a little amorphous. I'm still unsure precisely who reports to whom and who's in charge. Though when in specific situations it's very clear who the leader is, it's... nearly impossible to determine these things abstractly

Current Employee - Tech Lead

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

good company to work with

Cons

none to be frank now

Advice to Management
