    This opinion is about Network Solutions, which is an IBM acquired company.. A pure DESI & goal-less company

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Nature of Business is Good; But the people are too lazy to take interest in the Company's growth.. Especially Senior Management are kind of Escapists, taking the Business Rudder-less.. (Plz take this opinion as for NETWORK-SOLUTIONS.. But, NOT for IBM

    Cons

    NOCi Product - too stupid product to buy; It is not even updated in their own web-site; Also, Application Development Team just enjoys while screaming & shouting.. No calmness & seriousness. Ironically, Product Managers themselves talk NEGATIVE about their own Product; Make mockery of it.. And so is Engineering Manager / Engagement Manager - Just passing time.. What a rubbish company to work with !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Country Manager some one works from their Base HQs need to be appointed; NOT from Remote Management.. Also, screws of the Development & Sales Teams need to be tightened.. They are in a pathetic shape as of now. NO ONE (repeat) NO ONE takes pride in the Organization.. What an Irony :)

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you're good and have a compelling reason they'll eventually let you work from home (granted all career progression will stop at that point but it's nice to work from home).

    Cons

    They'll work you like a donkey and then pay you peanuts.

    And you quickly learn that even if you're a top performer you shouldn't expect any type of reward or meaningful increase in compensation because it isn't coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep top talent you have to actually give them an incentive to stay.
