Current Employee - Grads - Best to Quit After A Few Years Experience

I have been working at IBM

Pros

1) Looks good on CV
2) Potential to work on different client sites
3) Meet some really decent people
4) Can get experience in different areas

Cons

1) Salary is awful, with 3+ years experience, expect to be getting £500 more than new grads with no experience
2) PBC reviews encourage backstabbing, no loyalty to other colleagues
3) If you don't undertake 'giveback' (e.g. free work for IBM) you are penalised in the PBC reviews
4) If you only have 'average' utilisation and don't work for free, you are penalised in the PBC review

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You spend thousands on the graduate program and want to get the best, yet once in IBM, the consultants don't seem to matter any more. Focus on retaining the employees you have with better development options and salaries that aren't in the lowest 12% of consultancy firms..

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to a wide variety of clients and their business needs
    Great intranet sites that help you overcome most hurdles

    Cons

    Poor Management with no concern for good work put in
    Lack of pro-active customer oriented initiatives thus losing out on potential customers
    Bad paymasters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like all previous posts, please relook at the number of managers per resource. The hierarchy is too complex to decipher.

    No opinion of CEO
