    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Updating Automation Skills, Flexibility, Learning, Work At Home, Onsite Opportunities, Client Services, Innovation Company & Strategic Oriented with Long Run, Less Ramp-down, Proactive Leadership with Future Growth.

    Cons

    Manager Hierarchy should be designed. Manager should take inputs from individual but not from manager/team lead. Inner voice is exploited. Leadership is not as in good shape.

    Advice to Management

    Improve management skills, give a change for younger who are looking for higher level.

    Still it is as like 20 Years back how the managers were?
    Give an opportunity for everyone.

    Example: I resigned IBM after 8 years for only one cause,
    I requested IBM Managers, Resource Capability Managers, HR Managers, Resource Deployment Manager, Project Managers, Delivery Head's Division Heads for getting into RCM or RDM but there is no support from anyone after having a lot of communication with multiple heads in the company.

    I tired a lot but not even responded & its just because of EGO.

    But in IBM, I have received 3 Times Excellence Awards from Manager & Client, A Hardworking Employee.

    Manager need donkeys, labor who work like a slave, who should praise them, we need to pray them like a god.

    Managers are yield with EGO & with Self Respect. When it changes then this will be good and people will show interest to work in IT. Now check the scarcity of new comers who are not showing interest to come to Information Technology.
