Difficult. IBM has a Global policy that breaks down to this: Get out of the US.
Human Resource Delivery Professional (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 4, 2015
Pros: the people are the best thing about ibm.
Cons: the best people in the us have been driven away by ibm's global policy.
I worked for this company for over 25 years. It has evolved tremendously in that time. Some changes are good, some bad. Some of those changes are driven by political necessity; and I recognize that.

It boils down to this. Working in the US has become bureaucratic and expensive. IBM's policy has turned to outsourcing overseas. I can't blame them . . . yet at the same time I feel it is short-sighted.

The best job I have ever had was the last one I had with IBM. I miss it and wish I could have it back. Political reality has taken that option from me . . . but if that reality changes, I would go back to IBM in a millisecond.

Large corporation with some truly remarkable technology
Engineering (Current Employee), PAMarch 3, 2015
IBM is a huge corporation and comes with all the normal ups and downs of a big company. There are a lot of processes, which can be good, but also can slow down the pace of innovation.

IBM does a good job of trying to be innovative, but sometimes they have trouble translating those innovations to marketable product. That being said, the work going on in the IBM labs is truly remarkable!

Pros: work from home

Don't plan on making a career at IBM. The new hire program claims advancement opportunities and ability to find your dream job --- but it is rare.

IBM Review
Consultant (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCMarch 1, 2015
Pros: good vacation policy
Cons: bully management, long hours, risk of job loss ever present
The company is run by Finance, not by any strategy or determination of where the company is headed. As a result, if you live in the US, your job is always at risk - count on two layoffs per year, and in between that time, working long hours. Further much of the culture is based on Bully Management. This is not the case in all instances, but it has become much more pervasive.

The company no longer pays bonuses, and raises are limited.

Long work days, and often loss of vacation days, holidays and weekends to meet corporate goals.

Used to be the best place to work, but now things have changed. Job security is a thing of the past. Working to retirement age is wishful thinking these days.

Former star that has faded big time
Programmer (Former Employee), East Lansing, MIFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: free parking
Cons: a cool culture it is not
Nothing much to write. It's Dilbert world and then some. Culture, both physical and spiritual, is bland and does little to help foster engagement. More concerned with time metrics and other measurements that do not allow innovative and creative minds to shine.
