Recruiter I (Current Employee), RTP – July 16, 2014
At my time at Kenexa-IBM I was able to fully be immersed in recruiting without a recruiting background. I support senior recruiters with submitting phone interviews, sourcing candidates and reviewing applicants within the applicant tracking system.
Working for IBM as a Consultant for AT&T was a good experience.
Consultant (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GA – July 15, 2014
I enjoyed being a consultant through IBM because of the following:
I learned more about the Disaster Recovery process. I worked with great supervisor and co-workers. There were times where it was hard to correlate different projects that we worked on. I enjoyed learning more about the Disaster Recover Process.
Outsourced account is not the place to work in IBM
Band 7 (Former Employee), Atlanta – July 14, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: do not value employees skills
Worked on an account that was outsourced to IBM for 14 years then got layed off. They started laying off people 18 months after the account started. Eventually any 'dead wood' was gone and they went after highly qualified and highly rated employees.

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NC – July 7, 2014
Pros: benefits, competitive salaries
Cons: high utilization required, individual respect secondary to financial goals
IBM was once the "top of the heap" IT company to work for, largely because of high employee quality/morale and the company's "respect for the individual." Now it seems most all management decisions are based solely on making the current quarter's executive financial goals, supporting the march to a lofty earnings per share goal in 2015. Respect for – more... the individual is a thing of the past; that saying disappeared years ago.
In the services arm of the business, employees are actually required to make up their vacation time off, plus additional hours, in order to meet ridiculously high utilization targets, even if the work is not necessary. – less
Throughout my career I met some very interesting people both on the professional and personal level .
Dept. Tech / Parts analyst (Former Employee), East Fishkill, NY – July 7, 2014
Pros: paid vacation, sick and good health insurance.
Cons: company downsizing and some broken company promises
IBM was a fantastic and interesting place to work and then finally retiring from. I had the opportunity to advance in my field and in turn we helped educate our three children . I consider myself very fortunate and look back at my career with no regrets.
