Anyone notice how IBM is recently winning a ton of "best places to work" awards? Most are all pay to play. After having worked at IBM, I can attest first hand to its horrible culture and many poor leaders - it's is NOT a best place to work. Just causes me to question the validity of all of these public awards and recognition.

Isn't IBM a tier higher than ACN?

funny

You must be joking.

Overall probably not best place to work, some good spots tho.

I agree. I’ve been at IBM for 10 years. Had some horrible jobs, and found my way to a great little spot. There’s good and bad to every company. Having said that, they definitely paid for most of those rankings in my opinion.

Perhaps this is my lack of experience speaking, but isn’t this true of most companies? Like others I’ve been fortunate to find a great spot within the org that I feel truly represents the best of IBM.

I worked at IBM and found the culture to be great. Its not as cutthroat as other consultancies. Im sure everyone has different experiences, some will likely find accenture toxic whilst liking IBM and vice versa. Also what makes you think the awards are pay to play? I also find it a bit odd they are winning them cause there 100% way better companies out there.

Is it’s pay to play, are you saying other companies can’t afford to pay more?

I'm sure other companies "could" pay more but those that need it most put a higher price tag on a top 10 spot

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. I was told I will be getting a call from HR for negotiation in a day or two and then final offer letter will be rolled out. It has been 4 working days and I haven't been contacted yet. Has anyone faced such delay? Or Is it something I should be concerned about?
