Global Product Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Ashburn, VA – October 16, 2013
Pros: great work/life balance, teamwork, benefits
Great company to work for, good benefits, lots of work but great teamwork atmosphere. The team always covers your back. Great career path it you want to keep advancing but you can do the same thing if you like it and do not want to advance.
Too much work too few employees - no financial compensation
Server Administrator (Current Employee), East Fishkill, NY – November 20, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: compensation, work/life balance
Each day I perform multiple projects. Not much time too learn from peers but I have increased my skills and knowledge to a point.
Very difficult to move up or change jobs laterally.
Co-workers are knowledgeable and easy to work with but due too workload not much downtime or collaboration is possible.
The hardest part of the job is trying to find – more... a work/life balance - you are offered comp time off but can seldom take it.
No raises, no bonuses, no cost of living increase, and no OT for years - yearly layoffs.
The most enjoyable part of the job - when possible you can work from home a percentage of your workweek.
I am impressed by the money IBM puts into research and its innovative products - both hardware and software but IBM needs to take better care of their employees - financially and work/life balance. – less

Front Line Manager (Current Employee), Boulder, CO – November 19, 2014
Pros: good benefits, decent pay, global opportunities
Cons: long hours, intense work, easy to lose track of time
Since I started with IBM there has never been a dull moment or a lack of interest in my job role/assignments nor any issues in finding career paths as the company has many models to choose from. The hardest thing is knowing when to stop for the day and understanding the work will still be there in the morning the next day. Work/Life balance in your – more... hands.
The hardest part of the job is knowing when to stop. The best part of the job are the interactions you have with your clients and customers. – less

Pros: great atmosphere

I've learned what feels like an endless amount at IBM and it was a great place to grow and expand. Unfortunately our department downsized and migrated to India, and I was unable to follow. I will always cherish my time in the SAN department of IBM.
