Completely work focused office
Payroll Tax Analyst (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKMay 15, 2015
Pros: Flex time, ability to work from home
Cons: No job security, TONS of bureaucratic red tape to do almost anything.
Excellent work experience, but very little work/life balance. Was hired as long term contractor with 0% chance of going FT permanent. IBM outsources most positions and eliminates positions quickly, based on current business needs. Employees are rarely offered the option to transfer. I did like that my job schedule was flexible within reason.

A great company with a very challenging work environment
Senior Managing Consultant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 14, 2015
Management consulting at IBM is focused on bottom-line results, with less emphasis put on people issues. The team atmosphere was largely missing - the people on your team were the members of the project you are currently working on.

Good place to work
Infrastructure Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCMay 13, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: Project oriented
IBM is a company of projects. You have to secure and keep a project, in order to work for IBM. If your project ends, its up to you find another project within the company, and that's not easy.

A great place to learn a lot and grow
Server Interoperability and Options Test Engineer (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCMay 13, 2015
Pros: Great colleagues
Cons: Too much work politics and slow decision making
Working at IBM I got to meet with a lot of very intelligent people from across the globe and I loved how they thought and solved problems and saw how customer focused they were. I got to use, test, configure, manage and defect all sorts of equipment. Some were over 10 years old, others were still development stages. It was a great experience and it was everything anyone that studied IT ever dreamed about. It a really steep learning curve and you have to pick up every bit of knowledge fast or you will left behind. There was always so much to do.

Sr. Sales Specialist and Sales Team Leader (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 13, 2015
Good work environment for the most part. Feeling of teamwork and a great place to be as long as you are over quota. Constantly taking accounts away and increasing quotas to make it difficult to maintain consistent performance over the long run.

Typical day at work starts by checking emails and the ticketing systems from my multiple accounts, prioritizing the severity of the requests and then working the tikets to resolution. I have learned a lot about IT Security and Identity and Access Management processes.

Senior WFM Account Manager, Call Center Operations (Former Employee), RemoteMay 11, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits, strong corp structure
Cons: Too big sometimes
Working at IBM is something you must learn how to do. With its large size and huge scale projects, you can get lost in the process. However, if you have the right contacts and are proactive, you can succeed.

Good job work/life balance, good compensation, poor job security/advancement. Management is not in touch with employees. As a result of telecommuting, lack of job culture.

Assistanted Five Directors and Event Planning (Former Employee), Lenexa, KansasMay 7, 2015
Job was very flexible. Was able to work from home quite often, because the five directors I worked for were in other cities. It was a 6 month temp job that lasted 2 years. Three times a week, I went into the IBM office closest to my home and would help put events together to keep morale up among the group of approximately 250 employees. Enjoyed the different cultures I worked with.

I put together travel, meetings and all the other duties that came with assisting an IBM executive. Ordered supplies for the office, and helped the office manager with duties that would make her job easier.

Loved the job. There was no hard part.
