Network Technician in Ashburn, VA
on September 13, 2020
I was excited when I started at IBM, Learning the different technique of how to build different systems to customer standard was very exciting. But when working with some of the people there was very dissatisfying. Some is trying to blame you for things that you can get wrote up for, Some didn't want to show you the whole process of how to complete some of the project, you just place items in servers and their do the rest. some of the manager would tell you "you are not a good fit for the job without telling you why. There was no Work Ethic, mostly everyone had their own agenda. Ether you kiss up or get kicked out and a company of that caliper should not have that in the work place.

They are either moving work to India or letting people go, to hire younger and lower paid staff. No one is safe, your performance doesn’t matter. What was once one of the best companies to work for, is now meh.

Keep you on your toes with all of the layoffs. But overall when you are employed with them they do take care of you. Like everywhere, it’s very dependent on your management team.

Although I retired a while ago I still have contacts working there. Even in the current business climate I am confident it is still one of the top companies in the US for employment. The company provides challenging career paths, good financial rewards and a better than average benefits package.
