Receive Call/Call Handle (Dispatch) (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 15, 2017
It was always busy, never a dull moment. This was my first call center job. I learned how to manage calls and dispatch techs Management was always positive Taking calls from international customers, sometimes a language barrier I liked being busy
I worked remote for over a decade, working long hours and strange hours, managing world wide teams. I loved it. Times are changing. Most US employees are being asked to move to centralized locations in 6 cities in the US. Location is more important than skill set or experience. Great talent is being lost.. but it is an opportunity for others. I see both sides.. it is just a different company than it was.
Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) – Oakbrook, IL – February 13, 2017
IBM was overall a good place to work but there was not much opportunity for advancement. The managers were above-average and they offered quite a few small perks that helped to encourage us to meet our monthly goals.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – February 13, 2017
While IBM was once a company to aspire to, now it is just a dinosaur trying to stay relevant . The stock is at an all time high but it is all smoke and mirrors. 19 quarters of revenue loss really tells the story. The only thing it has going for it was the work life balance but they are eliminating any work from home or summer hours. The management is not smart and there is no career development. They are trying to hire younger workers but I would say beware!
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2017
IBM was a great company and I held a wonderful position. The experience was amazing and I still utilize the skills that I learned. Managing a group of individuals that are eager and willing to take directions to help others is a great feeling.
Decent company to work for; access to lots of resources within IBM
Business Systems Analyst / Application Support (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – February 13, 2017
Overall, a nice company to work for, but it is ultimately your responsibility to manage your career while working there. Don't take it for granted that your management team really knows and understands what you do there day to day. You should strive to proactively 'make yourself visible' to your management chain on a regular basis to ensure that they understand the value you bring to the table.
Access to lots of state of the art technology and training materials.
Advisory Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Work at Home – February 12, 2017
Typical Day at work: start work, scrum meeting, technical meeting/Department Meeting (once a week) I learned standard business process in IBM. In the same time, I learned how to develop standard software.
Fast paced environment requiring regular work load prioritization.
SAP Finance / Systems Test Analyst (Former Employee) – Endicott, NY – February 10, 2017
The work environment was very fast paced. Learning, implementing, and sharing new skills became a part of the success of this environment. Collaboration between team members and organizations is key to the success of the work environment and culture.
