    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People-oriented bosses. Great flexibility with transport and mobile allowance. Gym membership. Flexiben. Opportunities to travel overseas. Connection with European/china counterparts. Good training.

    Cons

    I was in a technical role. It is very suitable for those whose greatest wish is to remain in a technical role. However, the sales team seem to have a higher profile than the technical team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Encourage entrepreneurship within the company providing for more and stronger ownership
    2) Establish high-performer units and take the burden of bureaucracy from them, letting them focus on what they can do best: acquire business and carry out successful projects. The client will sincerely appreciate this. Thank you!
