IBM was a growing company.
Computer Parts Coordinator (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 16, 2015
Pros: Health benefits, working extra hours two saturdays a month
Cons: Rude Computer Engineers
When I first Started working at IBM/Burnham Services I was a Receptionist for the Parts Department that was connected to the main parts warehouse. Not only was it my responsibility to take and route calls for Engineers and Staff, but it was also my job to file and scan weekly sales reports, email other Parts warehouses nationwide and schedule weekly meetings with IBM Personnel. I was Promoted to Parts Coordinator in just over 4 months.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee), Herndon, VAApril 14, 2015
Pros: The name looks good on your resume because of their history
Cons: Everything else from pay to work to management
Not a good place to work. You are a number, compared with every other number at your band level. Your manager will be useless and friends with the right people, so untouchable. Work/Life balance doesn't exist, despite the five million emails they send daily telling you something to the contrary. Half of your time will be spent working with cantankerous, miserable managers and the rest will be spent doing ridiculous IBM admin requirements.

Great company
Linux/Unix Administrator (Former Employee), Littleton, MAApril 14, 2015
Pros: Good opportunities, good benifits, excellent co workers
Cons: Very large company and easy to get lost in.
Great company but felt insecure kept on consistently laying off all the time.

Being a large technological company, there are lots of opportunity to expand a person experience and skill set.

At times, the corporate direction seems to make little sense for those that are working in the trenches, but over all, a good place to work.

Technical Team Lead/Coordinator (Former Employee), Fair Lawn, NJApril 12, 2015
Cons: It is hard to get team support, HR department is a mess even when trying to change your home address, Their time logging system is sometimes complicated.
IBM is not a very stable company to work for as they are farming out most of their jobs to secondary staffing agencies/firms. Not sure how much longer they will be around since their last layoffs just happened this year

A Great Place for Professional a Professional Woker... Not so great for Manufacturing...
Re-Manufacturing Test Technician (Former Employee), Poughkeepsie, NYApril 9, 2015
I worked for IBM for 16 years in the Main Frame division. In that span all my managers for the most were excellent and helped me achieve my goals and advance within the company. I went from a Senior Systems Technician and ended my time there in a non management leadership position. Due to IBM leaning towards getting out of manufacturing; I have not seen a meaningful raise or bonus in quite some time. Over the past few years I have seen the manufacturing areas shrinking. Either disappearing, being sold off or being moved over seas.

They are expanding in areas of programming, cloud services, sales, and Total Business Solutions. If you are are professional job type there is room to advance and grow.
