The best people in the business
Linux Material Expert (Former Employee), C30November 4, 2014
Pros: great people environment
Cons: wished ibm paid higher salaries
IBM China was one of the best group of people I've been luck to work around. They work very hard as a group and socially great people.

The management where very professional and very approachable. When ever these was any issues they took action and follow-up

The hardest apart about this job was the processes. If anyone know anything about process – more... IBM is the godfather.

I liked the environment though I wished there was be more interactions between groups/ teams but being a large facility so group interactions was easier. – less

Opportunities if You are Proactive
Human Resource Manager (Current Employee), Work from HomeOctober 31, 2014
Pros: work from home, opportunities
Cons: healthcare costs, lonely
IBM has many opportunities for those who manage and own their careers. The environment is collaborative and professional. Focus on diversity. Employees at IBM are driven and are passionate to improve processes and reinvent. Work life integration is owned by the employee and may be influenced by projects/assignments.

My enjoyment comes from working – more... with professionals who care about the work we do and how we do it. I like the ability to not be micromanaged (varies by manager) and to proactively recommend and implement improvements.

The most difficult part is also some of the reinvention which sometimes leads to large resource actions. Additionally some of the support centers in growth areas don't provide seemless support. – less

Exciting place to work. Sometimes can be very political.
Project Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 29, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: long hours and weekend work
The entire day is very busy. There are deadlines that need to be met.
Teaming with the leads and team to ensure they understand the
requirements are sometimes challenging but very rewarding. I've learned how to balance workload by using time management and getting buy in from the teams to get the job done.

Being a contractor
AV/Network Administrator/ Video Manager (Current Employee), Washington, DCOctober 29, 2014
Pros: we often get free lunches and neat gifts from our clients that visit often.
Cons: no benefits
Ive worked for this company for 5+ years. I am currently a contractor and have been made many promises of become a full time employee. My supervisor is wonderful and very understanding.

But within the last 5+ years we have changed managers 3 times and everyone has a different view of how things should work here. They have decided that they are not – more... hiring but cutting departments and cutting the budgets in the whole company. The hardest part of this job is not knowing when our briefing center will close for good. – less
