Struggling to find success

A company that is really struggling to find it's way. Has some great technologies but is so focused on short term financials there is no long term investment to ensure that those technologies will be successful.
Pros

Cons
Resources have been cut to the bone

Great place to work and make money!
Security Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 6, 2016
I'm only applying to jobs because I'm ready to leave the sales industry. For you hunters and sales folks out there it's a great place to work. The commission structure is great and the co workers make it even better.

Good company to work for but challenging to sustain pace for extended periods of time.
Sr. Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 5, 2016
The typical work week is normally 44 hours per week minimum within my sector with the expectation to do more on a continual basis. There is little balance between family and work.

Highly volatile company. Flexibiliy is key
Market Development Executive - North America (Current Employee) –  Marlboro, MAJuly 5, 2016
Quite volatile. "I B M" I've Been Moved is quite appropriate. Lots of nice people. Lots of recent college grads. With transition to a cloud - SaaS based company - lots of interesting opportunities in the cognitive or "Watson" areas.
Pros
Young, vibrant staff
Cons
Young, vibrant staff and lots of turnover and reassignment

Excellent place to work in the beginning. Great professional team. But at the end did not care for aging employees.
Global Project Manager (Former Employee) –  White Plains, NYJuly 5, 2016
Excellent first 20 years not too good the last 5 years.
As they let people go more and more work was given to employees creating a very stressful environment.

Great place for learning
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 3, 2016
If you are a new grad, this is a great place to be. People are nice and talent. Some of them are team players, but some of them are not. Everyone works hard to compete with each other to get a better rating.
Pros
Training, Stock option, Job Advancement
Cons
Work/Life balance, Many overtime and weekend work.

Lots of change, not all of it good

There are a lot of changes going on in IBM right now. Not all of them are good. IBM is trying to change who they are and are sacrificing what once made them great.

Advancement Opportunities for Low Cost Countries
Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXJuly 1, 2016

Great technology corporation
Sales Executive Smarter Networks - IBM GTS (Current Employee) –  Cochranville, PAJune 30, 2016
Fascinating company with enormous potential. Extensive sales training, however, not job specific and too broad in scope.

Personally received very misleading information about position. Position varied greatly from what was described. Annual layoffs impact many and easy for new and senior employees to become part of a resource action.
Pros
fascinating technical coporation
Cons
experience is greatly dependent upon your manager

High Stress, Management top heavy Environment
Team Leader/Manager (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJune 30, 2016
I was told that the best part of working for IBM was being able to put it on my resume and that was true. There was freedom working from home and being able to come and go as needed. However their benefits package deteriorated over the years to where they covered very little. They have outsourced over seas the majority of their technical jobs. They used to pay out 26 weeks severance but laid me off with 4 weeks severance after 19 years combined service. In addition I had to train 4 resources from India and 2 from Brazil to do my job. Brutal company that does not care about it's workforce. 16 straight quarters of declining revenue. You know why.
Pros
working from home
Cons
everything else

Good start out company
iOS Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJune 30, 2016
Starting here is great if you're trying to get your feet wet in the industry, not so much if you want growth and have an extreme passion to progress and learn new things.
