Great Potential / Much Waste
Senior Dev and Tech Lead, Watson Prototypes (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WA (Remote)June 6, 2016
What a mess over there! Some great people and a great legacy, but things are constantly changing (and not always for the better). Management pretty much sucks. Highest contract rate I've ever had, though, and working remotely was awesome (though that is one of the things that is changing for the worse - they seem to be going the way of Boeing and cutting back on that sort of thing).
Pros
Pay, Exposure to Ideas
Cons
Management, Cutting back on telecommuting

Lack of respect for individual / Toxic Work Culture
Senior IT Audit/Compliance Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJune 6, 2016
IBM has lost it's way and has lost it's respect for individuals which used to be it's mantra. It has surgically cut jobs / costs over past few years and continues to push work to overseas (non-US) countries to perform whereever possible. All in all it makes it impossible for me to recommend anyone working there as the restructuring actions continue which has caused much heartache throughout the company.
Pros
Smart People
Cons
Bad Culture / Continuous Restructuring

Healthnet Sev1/Sev2 Outage Support Representative (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJune 6, 2016
I worked there because it was an easy Job while I was in school. They did not have any Advancement for me and was there for three years. Typical day was taking calls and escalating any issues if basic troubleshooting did not work.
Pros
Easy job and took calls
Cons
Very short lunches, strict schedule, and little vacation

IBM is struggling to re-invent itself
Associate Partner, Enterprise Architecture (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 4, 2016
IBM is a solid company and has a lot of great products, services and people but it also has over a hundred year of bureaucracy that's outdated and can stifle innovation and creativity. While it is possible to work around some of this, it can slow you down.
Pros
Pays well, good people
Cons
lack of communication, too many hoops to jump through

Career Killer
Senior I/T Specialist - DevOps Engineer (Current Employee) –  Southfield, MIJune 3, 2016
The environment has over the years. The Company is down sizing its Consulting division each year and outsourcing to it's non US divisions within Global Business Services. There is not much of a future in the US GBS division. No matter how you perform, you are looking over your shoulder at the end of each quarter. Hopefully, this will change. The people I have worked with there are truly amazing.

Big company with lots of potential
Principle, Marketing Technology Strategy (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 2, 2016
IBM is a huge company and great talent. Its legacy is both its pride as well as its cryptonite. Corporate culture is slow and desperately trying to transform to be more customer-focused. The footprint of IBM is massive and if you can stomach the culture your impact would be immense.
