Outsourced account is not the place to work in IBM
Band 7 (Former Employee), AtlantaJuly 14, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: do not value employees skills
Worked on an account that was outsourced to IBM for 14 years then got layed off. They started laying off people 18 months after the account started. Eventually any 'dead wood' was gone and they went after highly qualified and highly rated employees.

Too conservative for me
ASSOCIATE PROGRAMMER (Former Employee), East Fishkill, NYJuly 9, 2014
Pros: learned a lot of basic prgramming skills
Cons: location, too conservative
I had to learn assembly language to pass Programmer training. First saw SAS in this job and was super interested in using it. The location was in a little town.

People are good mangament needs improvments but still bearable
System x hardware remote support Engineer (Current Employee), Cairo , EgyptJuly 7, 2014
- A typical day of work would be me arriving at the start of my shift resolving all issues i get then going home

- Well through out my 2 years of Exp in IBM i did learn how to deal with all various types of IBM machines servers blade centers and troubleshooting them also SSR or on site engineer support is part of the job

- Management i can say it – more... could be better and lets stop at that point there are too many small flows that makes you in the end not so comfortable in your work place

-Co-workers here are the best mostly the main reason person can show up to work at least , isnt it in all of the companies? :D

- Hardest part of the job is the shifts we are located in Cairo we support USA coast to coast which means during the whole week i have 0 social life and in the weekend we follow USA in Saturday and Sunday while our country goes with Saturday and Friday

The most enjoyable part of my job when i crack a new case handled to me and some of the birthdays parties we have :D – less

No longer a great place to work, unfortunately
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCJuly 7, 2014
Pros: benefits, competitive salaries
Cons: high utilization required, individual respect secondary to financial goals
IBM was once the "top of the heap" IT company to work for, largely because of high employee quality/morale and the company's "respect for the individual." Now it seems most all management decisions are based solely on making the current quarter's executive financial goals, supporting the march to a lofty earnings per share goal in 2015. Respect for – more... the individual is a thing of the past; that saying disappeared years ago.

In the services arm of the business, employees are actually required to make up their vacation time off, plus additional hours, in order to meet ridiculously high utilization targets, even if the work is not necessary. – less

Throughout my career I met some very interesting people both on the professional and personal level .
Dept. Tech / Parts analyst (Former Employee), East Fishkill, NYJuly 7, 2014
Pros: paid vacation, sick and good health insurance.
Cons: company downsizing and some broken company promises
IBM was a fantastic and interesting place to work and then finally retiring from. I had the opportunity to advance in my field and in turn we helped educate our three children . I consider myself very fortunate and look back at my career with no regrets.

Senior Development Engineering Manager (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCJuly 7, 2014
Company has changed throughout the years.... where the benefits saturated and employees are less cared for. The goal has become profit driven only... no longer technology driven.

Desktop Support
Desktop Support Representitive (Current Employee), Nashville, TNJuly 7, 2014
Pros: the pay is good
Cons: everything else
Management takes forever to get you the tools you need to do the job. No Active Directory or other software tools, until you need them, or ask for them several times. No Swipe card to get in the building, you have to be escorted and you have to sign in every morning without a swipe card. The bureaucracy is bad. Can't do anything. I have worked a lot – more... of jobs over the years, and I can honestly say IBM is the worst job I have ever worked – less

Low morale
Sales Operations Advisor, Software Group Division (Former Employee), Glendale, CAJuly 6, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits, good salary
Cons: poor morale
Working evenings, weekends and during vacation is expected. You work hard to develop processes, train off-shore employees in the processes, and then your job is given to them and you are left to seek out another job within 30 days. There is no job stability.
