Constant Uncertainty at work

Constant Uncertainty at work. Pay is very low. No bonus structure. Opportunities to take training through IBM learning portal or outside websites.

Interview them as deeply as they interview you!

Great staff at the technical levels. IBM's reputation seems to earn it some solid Government contracts. However... I should have taken the obvious hint the universe was trying to send, when the interviewer for the first interview arrived 30 minutes after the appointment time, and didn't seem to know what was going on. Accepted a senior management role, but within a month or two it became obvious the role was surplus to requirements. Let go after five months with little support or direction, and wondering why I was hired. IBM Ballarat has a close relationship with Federation University, so be prepared to work with students in "Earn and Learn" programs - this is both a pro and a con. Workplace is distant from the Ballarat CBD, with not many facilities close by.

Pros

Great technical people. Good training if you can find it.

Cons

Micromanagement, sprawling hierarchy, no onsite HR.

Fast paced consultancy with a focus on keeping customer happy

The environment was one of pandering to the client rather than looking at what the client really needed and guiding them to a better outcome. Sometimes delivery is not the best outcome for the client. Limited Executive support but lots of blame and overzealous coaching rather than examining the real issues.
