No raises. Terrible pay. Then comes the layoffs. Stay away. If you go on disability for any time you will be laid off. Management is weak and this IT company is behind The industry standard. If your company gets bought out by IBM plan on IBM running it into the ground and you will either be sold off to another company or laid off. Don’t apply here!!!! Too bad I can’t give 0 stars IBM doesn’t deserve a 1 star!!

Technical Specialist (Current Employee) - IBM Century City
A new environment is more challenging, while you're at it you want to move, there's bottleneck on Managers not allowing you to grow and keeping you stagnant on the same role for their benefit. As an individual you need to understand that you're there to serve at the same time not neglecting your growth and aspirations.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, working outside your prescribed normal hours, taking more responsibilities than what anticipated.
