    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Without much fuss but maybe a bit slower than smaller, more agile companies. Very heavy on in-person interviews to test fit and overall candidate performance. The screening process for my particular position started at the university with a phone interview and closed with a intense 4 interviews in one day session a couple of weeks later. Emphasis is on fit (passion/enthusiasm for the industry and company) and business cases that require some creative thinking and basic understanding of the IBM business model.

    Interview Questions
    • Heavy on business cases that are somewhat IBM specific. Reading up on the company's strategy helps and is expected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very limited negotiating power. IBM has clout in the industry and uses it. This giant doesn't fall with any individual and will not give in. Will respect market rates though as you can prove them.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Too easygoing. A lady and a guy were the interviewers. It seemed like they were trying to sell me telemarketing products instead of a job. It was obvious that they had been asked to set up a group the soonest possible and this showed when i was asked to join them in 4 days time the latest...

    Senior Managing Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IBM in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had great excitement about the opportunity to be part of a large firm however restrospectively it appears that the interview techniques do not seem to be conducive. The process consists of 3 steps - a. HR screen, b. Technical screen which is of high standard and thorough c. in-person with multiple senior members of the practice.

    The final in-person interview is totally non-standard and left to each interviewer to determine and come to conclusion. This final step is the dicey part, while some senior members are genuine and take the time to understand the candidates background, some think its for them to decide and adopt a posture on how to eliminate the candidate. If you are lucky and survive you get to the shore, if not you are dumped.

    My experience with one member was great while the other seemed like he was dragged to this task and I could not hear him properly further the questions asked were generic and did not seem like they were meant to know about my background.

    Nevertheless, my advice to candidates would be to keep focussed on few key/strong things about them and keep repeating the same on the multiple interviews. Empahsize on messaging about you and get thru it. Because this stage is the key one and even though you have proven yourself about your expertise on the phone interview, it does not count towards final evaluation.
