I worked at IBM as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Nil, there is no reason to work here

Cons

People are disposable, don't bother going the extra mile, they don't care or appreciate it, it's expected . Then when they have no further use for you they make you redundant. Especially the ANZ Law Department, 8 redundancies at the same time they were recruiting. The replacements started on the same day the staff who were made redundant were leaving - Poor form IBM!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the lot of them, all in in for what they can get, they don't put in leave forms and take leave, they then accumulate their leave balances and take extended breaks. Oh and if your a woman, don't get pregnant, as soon as you do they want you gone.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Family oriented benefits
    Easy time in this organisation

    Cons

    Lower pay as compared to industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear those seniors who are just clocking their time to retirement. This saves more $ for the entire organisation as compared to cutting cost by removing coffee for the company.

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

    Pros

    Direct access to the state-of-the-art technologies, even you have the opportunity to contribute.
    Salary and benefits are good.
    You can have Home office.

    Cons

    Discrimination among contractors and IBMers. USA employees don't like contractors from other countries and tend to do discrimination. IBM still uses contractor approach to hire new employees. IBM managers don't have respect for employees time and the can request to attend to office even on holidays.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
