IBM is the best place to work if you're a geek

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at IBM full-time

ProsLots of autonomy
Bring your own device
Amazing culture and opportunities to learn
Supportive management and fair treatment
Competitive pay and decent benefits

ConsOnly 3 weeks of vacation to start
Benefits could be better, they are average
A decent amount of big company bureaucracy
You have to use Lotus Notes

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are two things that IBM could do to improve in my opinion - 1) provide a more open environment that did not force everyone to use Lotus Notes...it is reviled among many in the organization (except those that have never used another tool for email)...this does not have to mean Outlook (which is worse), just allow people to use whatever POP3/IMAP email client they want to use, and 2) improve the perks just a little bit versus competing high tech companies...some sites don't even have free coffee any more, let alone free soda or food, maybe provide a little better vacation package for US employees (4 weeks instead of 3) and slightly more coverage on health care...

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