Very challenging job, requiring more work to be performed many evenings and into the weekends

Operations Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsEnjoy working with people who have a passion for the jobs they perform. Most IBMers are very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and will help you wherever possible.

ConsAs in most companies, I believe we are working far longer hours then ever before. If you are an exempt employee, your hourly rate drops significantly due to the excessive nights and weekends worked. As much as you earn, when you look at an hourly rate, it's not always that impressive.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeems like even in the best of times, IBM still does not offer much of a bonus or salary increase plan. Even as a top performer, you're lucky if your increase is 1-1.5%. I find this no way to retain top performers and talent. IBM seems to be moving towards a company that hires top talent, but that these people will only stay for 5 years. There is far more churn in attrition than ever before.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
