Cons: Almost all benefits are cut, except for health insurance, no meal vouchers, no bonuses ( this was cut IBM worldwide in 2014), for 3700 employees there is 1 ( one ) relaxation room with room for 3 ! Employees ... Since it was created I have yet to actually benefit from it. There is a chronic and general lack of motivation, and no matter how much you spin your wheels it will take you nowhere, until you your self will lose your motivation. That's why they always put in all job postings that they are searching for self motivated people, because the company will do next to nothing to motivate you.

"I Wish I Knew That I Would Not Be Receiving Salary."
Question the position and how long it has been in existence. If it is a new position that is a great sign. If it is not a new position, ask about how long the previous individuals had kept that position. If not for very long, this is a red flag about those over-seeing this position.
