International Business Machines (IBM) Corp. Reviews
What is it like working at International Business Machines (IBM) Corp.?
"A lot of travel and stress with low pay."
Security Consultant, (Computing / Networking / Information Technology) in Washington:
Pros: International work and work opportunities.
Cons: Pay is low without bonuses. Promotions are nonexistent I’ve been stuck as a consultant for six years with top reviews.
Senior Software Architect in Dallas:
Excellent employee benefits and employee support. As with any public company though there always seems to be some cloud of company wide lay offs hanging over your head. Also, being a very large corporation it is really hard to feel connected to the company goals, as they shift with the constantly reorganizing executive shuffles. This tends to be hidden behind a vague pep-squad sentiment within the culture that rings false for the most part. A seemingly desperate attempt to be seen as a positive team player so you will not be caught up in the next corporate wide lay off. I am not sure if this is unique to IBM or simply a culture that is punch drunk from yearly lay offs. There are a lot of good people here. The long term IBMers have a sincere love of the company, well earned through the benefits. They also tend be insulated in their experiences, not having a lot of insight into how smaller companies operate.
Cons: Lack of technical people.
"Home Office Flexibility."
Sales Representative, Software:
Pros: Good people, great company.
Cons: Don't get paid as well as other people in the industry.
Pros: Good Corporate Culture, Work Flexibility.
Cons: Job alignment as per skills is very difficult.
Information Technology Specialist:
Pros: All the learning opportunities you ever wanted, trainings courses certifications projects etc.
Cons: Almost all benefits are cut, except for health insurance, no meal vouchers, no bonuses ( this was cut IBM worldwide in 2014), for 3700 employees there is 1 ( one ) relaxation room with room for 3 ! Employees ... Since it was created I have yet to actually benefit from it. There is a chronic and general lack of motivation, and no matter how much you spin your wheels it will take you nowhere, until you your self will lose your motivation. That's why they always put in all job postings that they are searching for self motivated people, because the company will do next to nothing to motivate you.
Pros: Good to work in this organisation just looking for the better one considering the growth.
Cons: Nothing to say bad about IBM, HAPPY.
