I worked at IBM full-time

Pros

the name of IBM looks good in your CV

Cons

awful location of the office: no facilities around, no sufficient parking places, poor availability by public transportation, walking or getting there by bicycle is out of question
low salary compared to competitors
complete lack of benefits
general depressive feeling for line of business operating on low budget: no money for team buildings or other events whatsoever

    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of job opportunities, good for starting a career. Your happiness will greatly depend on the particular position you'll end up in. However be careful, most jobs in Bratislava are just copying excel sheets from one to another. The only thing you'll learn in these positions is how to live in a super-formalized environment.

    Cons

    Once you learn how to do your simple daily tasks, you will become constrained by IBM formal culture. The company in BA is everything but innovative (e.g. still using office 2003 if you can get your hands on one) and it is hard to come up with initiatives. But, again, this all depends on the position you're in. I would not recommend doing a career in IBM's International Services Centre.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
