Too big a company to get required visibility

It would have been one of the best company to work for, especially in terms of interpersonal relationships, benefits, learning opportunities and growth but everything has gone for a toss since the company has become way too much manager centric over the last one decade. Now, it has become a temple of bureaucracy and lobbying where there is one and only one God you need to completely submit yourself to, your manager!!

IBM for me has been a good place to work, though other peoples views will vary hugely based on which part of the business they are in, with many having much more negative experiences. Very sales focused culture & quarterly managed business. Never standing still, the business and people are subject to constant change to meet changing priorities and customer needs. Great people to work with, though a fairly high level of churn with people coming and going.

Able to be part of a large company is very exciting. However business is quite slow and it is getting replaced by other competitors in the same space.
