It was a very good experience working for this very large global company.

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Waltham, MA

I worked at IBM as a contractor for more than a year

ProsA plethora of new applications to learn.

ConsThe offshore internal meetings were sometimes very late for them. Never too early for me as I am an early bird.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great communication as it helped at least me know what was happening within the organization on a very high level.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

IBM is an Innovative Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

ProsEasy environment. Benefits were amazing. Management mentors and encourages learning and advancement. Modules are free and vast in every area. Very happy with compensation and benefits.

ConsIntranet website is disconnected and very difficult to navigate. Resource Action took me by surprise. New employees may not enjoy the same benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementFrom selling services to actual implementation was a cost cutting spree resulting in high priced services and low production satisfaction. The most complaints I heard from the customer was not being able to understand the help desk person.
