Featured Review

Former Employee - Client Executive

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The IBMer ! - great colleagues. IBM is much more than a “hardware, software, services” company. IBM is now emerging as a cognitive solutions and cloud platform company

Cons

Complex organisation, can at times be frustratingly slow - but this is recognised by leadership and is changing

Current Employee - Finance Manager

I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Customer centric, insists on highest standards, great peer group, variety of projects to gain great experience

Cons

Challenging projects, time management, deliverables, meetings, project timelines
