    Benefits are very good, flexible

    Being such a big company, IBM can offer a lot of benefits to their employees. They give you a fair amount of vacation time and 6 floating holidays for most of their US divisions which is great. I have been pleased with the IBM benefits over the past four years.

    Health Insurance costs are excellent. Employees choosing high deductible pay nothing for health insurance. IBM then pays up to $500 per year into an HSA for choosing a high deductible plan.

    The ability to work from home and have flexible work out is also an excellent benefit.

    The benefits package has been shrinking a little bit every year - would expect IBM to be a leader if corporate America decides to stop offering health insurance benefits and force employees into the government sponsored healthcare exchanges.

    The benefits are top notch for the most part, although I'm healthy, so don't really use them other than for the basics and checkups. Like all others, they cut here and there, and have higher copays than in the past.

    its a great benefit package.

  • Sep 20, 2014
    Current Employee in Dallas, Texas

    No pensions; only 401K available

  • Sep 19, 2014
    Former Program manager in San Jose, California

    the worst thing is that they stopped giving retirement pension benefits

    Current Employee in Raleigh, North Carolina

    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.

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