IBM is a gigantic company with an infinite amount of resources and opportunities at your fingertips. Great because you can connect with Nobel Prize winners, travel to the numerous client or philanthropic sites around the world, and be at the forefront of technology and innovative solutions for clients. Bad because you don't know where to start looking for information, get lost if you don't pro-actively manage your career, and get stuck with a lot of red tape (necessary in a large firm). However, I am extremely satisfied because I can literally create my own career, work independently when I want (the virtual work environment is fantastic for someone who also has a life outside of work!), and have the full support of highly intelligent and fun people that I work with.

BEing part of something my father was eons ago.


Downers

Bureaucracy and entrenchment. They need to learn that a report that was good enough 10 years ago isn't now. With the programmers we have here, you think they cld get someone to write a new script. Or even take suggestions on changing it.


Comments

I enjoy my work. However a lot of frustration with the bureaucracy

Cutting U.S. jobs and hiring overseas does not make for a pleasant work environment.
