IBM Global Services

Project Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsExposure to large commercial accounts. Employee stock purchase plan. Access to education classes, materials and certifications. Work from home. Partnerships with other large companies provide for good networking.

ConsOpportunities for advancement are limited in some positions due to a tendency to pigeonhole employees in current role from lack of availability of trained resources to assume responsibilities. Extreme cost cutting measures especially in Q4 limiting education, travel and hiring. Many layers of management to navigate. Distribution of work across global regions slows down delivery of projects. Salaries below market value. Recent 401k changes are viewed as unfavorable to employees. Overall low morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore cross-training of employees. Listen to front line employees to understand results of cost-cutting measures. Work/Life balance is purely on paper not reality.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company but they are not competitive with pay

    Software Sales (Former Employee) Phoenix, GA

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great products. Amazing support. Best teaming / collaboration tools. Cons: Very difficult to advance salary. Extremely high growth targets so 20% or less of sales team will make their sales quota. Seeming disregard for employee… Advice to Senior Management: Get rid of the pork and do whatever is necessary… More
