Employee Comments

    Former Program manager in San Jose, California

    the worst thing is that they stopped giving retirement pension benefits

    The health plan coverage keeps changing, but that's to be expected with the changes to health care law. Less a company issue and more a political issue forcing the company to adapt to keep competitive.

    Current Unit Process Engineering Professional in East Fishkill, New York State

    Excellent 401k options (very low-cost), health benefits are pretty good, employee stock purchase plan is offered, relocation assistance was top notch

  • Sep 15, 2014
    Current Senior Consultant in Washington, District of Columbia

    Free health insurance provided by Kaiser Permanente

    Former CTP in Atlanta, Georgia

    Matching 401(k) - must be employed on December 15th to receive though

    Current Employee in Atlanta, Georgia

    I don't like the fact that year to year the provider can shift even if the coverage is the same. I hate changing doctors. So I always select the package that allows me consistent care over consistent coverage.

    The best: 401k and the insurance (yeah, it's getting more expensive every day, but IBM does subsidize heavily).
    The worst: vacation and time off - you will be working 44 hour per week and discouraged from taking vacations

    Former Employee in Austin, Texas

    Excellent sick days coverage. Good vacation time and personal holidays.

    Current Administrative Analyst in Atlanta, Georgia

    Great employee benefits! IBM seems to be amongst one of the best companies for employee benefits. The pricing plans does seem to increase every year but it is worth it.

    At the time health insurance was of no cost to employees. Good coverage for medical/vision, good vacation policy (although by taking vacation you lose annual billable hours). Very pleased with package at the time.
