z/OS IT Specialist (Former Employee) - Johannesburg, Gauteng
Working remotely with IBM UK and Customers located throughout the EU was a great learning experience. Apart from usual 24/7 support....all tasks are Project orientated, so you can plan your day, and work towards known deadlines. Teamwork amongst the local 'Sysprogs' was remarkable...even tough communication was via 'chat media'.

Business Continuity Consultant (Former Employee) - Cape Town, Western Cape
Not a nice place to work. Very poor work/life balance. Very much a dog-eat-dog culture. Accountable to IBM USA, unrelenting in demand for higher profits regardles of the exchange rate and country culture.
