Large Company with no internal direction
System Technician (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 22, 2015
IBM employees work very hard for their customers mid level down to the mail staff, unfortunately IBM has lost it's feel for IT and technology as a whole.
IBM has become a large sales company with no product to sale and no direction on where it wants to go.

not productive
Development Engineer (Former Employee), RTPJune 18, 2015
Big company. Very hard to get things done. The company is very big and much political. The company is Management centric rather than employee friendly.

Enjoyable place to work
Data Entry/Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Rochester, MNJune 18, 2015
Pros: Good bennefits
Cons: Not enough work for everyone
On a typical day, all of the employees come together to complete our daily tasks. The management team were awesome. They respected everyone and treated everyone the same. They even take time out of their day to help their employees.

Because our daily routine always moved smoothly, there were very little hard parts of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the environment and relationship with all the employees.

Say Goodbye to your Work / Life Balance
Staffing Consultant (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, COJune 15, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Massive Workload & Very High Turnover
Get ready to work...A LOT! If you cannot work over 50 hours a week, this is not the company for you. If you cannot work with very stringent SOP's, this company is not for you.

Good benefits, work from home.

Big company with many resourses
Deskside Support (Former Employee), Newtown Square, PAJune 15, 2015
Pros: Each group is proficient at its craft.
Cons: Procedures must be altered to allow speed of decision.
With just a few tweaks can be an even greater company. Needs to be open to view customer point of view. It would be PERFECT if the time from open to close of client issues could be shorter.

Client Executive (Current Employee), Miami, FLJune 15, 2015
Old school blue chip professional company. Great training ground to develop a strong work ethic and professional experience. IBM works with some of the largest companies in the world so you get tremendous exposure to real world large enterprise problems. Its also a very global company so in a single day you could be interacting with people from all over the world.

Manage your career, navigate your way and you can really move around in IBM.

Forget the beer keg totting extensions of graduate school, work in a professional place with professionals. Learn from real world experience.

GOOD WORK CULTURE AND COOPERATIVE COLLEAGUES..
ASSOCIATE TECHNICAL PROFESSIONAL (Current Employee), New Delhi, ILJune 14, 2015
IT BEGINS WITH CABS PICKING YOU UP AND DROPPING YOU. CONVEYANCE FACILITY IS GOOD.THE COMPANY'S WORK CULTURE PROMOTES TO WORK US IN A TEAM . MANAGEMENT IS EFFECTIVE .COWORKERS ARE COOPERATIVE .THERE IS NOTHING AS SUCH AS HARDEST PART OF THE JOB EXCLUDING THE NIGHT SHIFT BUT AFTER SOMETIME YOU START ENJOYING IT. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART IS THAT PEOPLE RESPECT YOU WHEN THEY KNOW YOU WORK FOR IBM . ONE NEGATIVE ASPECT IS THE LESS SALARY WHICH YOU GET.

Extremely productive and fair
Mechanical Engineer - Semi-Automated Tooling (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJune 12, 2015
Pros: On the leading edge of technology
Cons: A little archaic when I was there. They used the old IBM systems and their own OS.
My years at IBM were only a few but very meaningful. I now see what a great company it was. The engineers I worked with were world class. They had many years experience, very knowledgeable and shared everything they knew. My department had an excellent mentoring program. I rated them with 5 stars for compensation because they actually made the effort to do research and bring employee salaries up to meet the going market rates for engineers. It was a "no frills" company, honest with integrity. Even when the company was planning on laying people off they were honest about not being certain about the future. When they laid people off, they helped setup career centers with counselors and recruiters to help those displaced find jobs.

Highly matrix-ed, but well managed company.
Sr. Software Client Architect (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 12, 2015
Pros: Open office concept in Bay Area offices, free goodies in break room.
Cons: Company under pressure as it transforms and adjusts to the Cloud and Open source technology winds.
Good company to work for, especially if you are in the current, modern technology stack. Client facing role can be rewarding working with some of the large Enterprise customers, helping them meet their business goals with a comprehensive portfolio of software solutions.
