Fun Workplace but fast paced

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Co-workers and Management were great. I had to resign and move out of state due to family health issues. There were a lot of young coworkers that needed to be trained and slowed down production.

IBM is a good place for work especially if you want to grow and develop in a company. It was a good time when working at this institution. I did enjoy time there.

Challenging work

Overall, IBM was a good, challenging work experience. It's also a very large company, so sometimes you can feel like a number or a dollar sign. It really depends on the group you work with.

Great people but low morale

I had the privilege of collaborating with highly skilled professionals during my tenure at the company. The organization offers valuable opportunities for skill development and growth. However, it's worth noting that the persistent concern regarding potential layoffs can create an uncertain and challenging work atmosphere.

Great coworkers

Great company culture through the years. Management and peers typically supportive. Matrix management allows for autonomy. Tremendous workload and tight deadlines at times.

The best co-workers anywhere.

Great place to learn and the best, smartest, most welcoming co-workers you'll find anywhere. The turnaround continues. Pay is just okay and have not been much in the way of bonuses in the last 10 years or so.

I've had the privilege of working with IBM for several years now, and I can confidently say that it has been an exceptional experience. IBM is a company that has a longstanding reputation for innovation and reliability, and my time here has only solidified that perception.

They cut US employees

They have cut the last few US employees in some depts. The pay raises for Senior people were minimal and they did not want to promote anyone past a Band 8 level.

Was a great place to work back in the day

Worked there as a Sales rep. It was a great time to be there, but things have changed a lot. The company doesn't look at all like it used to. No longer the dominant company in the IT industry.

Vax or Canned

I can't support a company that attempted to force vax their 400,000 employees. Other than that, it was almost a dream job. They just let politics get in the way of their people.

FUN but a lot of new higher TURNOVER

IBM is a great company to work for if you can get picked up for an actual project. the new hire turnover was high because IBM would let then go if they werent on a project.

good WLP bad pay

The company excels in Work-Life Balance (WLP), ensuring employees have ample personal time. However, compensation falls below industry standard, making it a double-edged experience.

Very positive experience. Would never have left, but was ready to retire. Liked the experience more than I ever thought possible.

What is the best part of working at the company?Pay and work environment at the office as well as remote work option. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Learning curve of new projects. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very positive environment to work in. Most of our work meetings was by phone or video so dress code was loose and culture was laid back. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Lots of phone/video meetings.

Successful project delivery? Depends on how "success" is measured...

Inefficiency persists due to the absence of effective project management support, teamwork, and, most importantly, mutual respect among colleagues. Despite an abundance of talent and creativity, there's a noticeable lack of coordinated collaboration, clear communication, and adherence to a well-structured project workflow. Whether it's a prominent campaign or a less-visible marketing project, the ultimate outcome is consistently success, albeit overbaked with the strenuous ingredients of anxiety, stress, and numerous late nights spent creating, re-creating, and duplicating efforts. The end result ultimately brings successful results through stakeholder's eyes, but at the cost of unhealthy working conditions and poor time management within the team. Ultimately, this success could be easily attained with organization, effective project management, improved communication, and a greater emphasis on team value, as opposed to the disjointed, haphazard, and overlapping efforts that currently characterize the team's work approach.
