Lots of layers of management and comparative culture to get good jobs, lots of inexperienced employees. Too many people involved in simple decisions. Rely on their size and reputationbl rather results.
Management is poor
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.
There was lack of leadership in the company There was lot of bureaucracy within the organisation which resulted in not being able to respond to change in market situations and delay in responding to client expectations
Provided good opportunities to gain knwoledge
Lack of direction
Self motivation is key to success in IBM, but that was difficult with minimial support and no local network or knowledge having moved to Perth from overseas. I learned to be more foreceful and self reliant and more of what is expected to represnt the logo. The manamgement was varied in approach and expectations and changed constantly which made it confusing over longer periods, so you become adaptable. .
All for one attitude
Lack of support from management
IBM doesn't have welfare and they will never secure your job, poor management especially in employees skills utilization. They waste many skilled employees by redundancy packages without any discussion with employees' managers.
No welfare (even coffee or tea), no bonus even you worked very hard, no secure job, poor management.
A typical day at work starts with reading emails to learn status. After that, the day is planned for work, meetings and keeping some buffer time to take into account unplanned meetings/managing unknown risks. Every day it is a learning experience with new learnings to be picked and/or existing learnings improved upon. New learnings are the most enjoyable and challenging part of my job. The toughest part of the job is attending meetings where I am merely listening :-)
Work Culture and work-life balance
Poor pay and chances of improvement
