Pros

Great Brand recognition. Limitless online classes available. Generous travel reimbursements.

Cons

Not a supportive work environment for entry level employee's. No structured mentoring program. Annual performance appraisals are conducted by a manager who you will likely never meet and only speak with once each month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to develop new hires. Most candidates hired by IBM are bright, put them in a situation where they have an opportunity to be successful.

    Pros

    Employees' experience within IBM varies greatly from team to team and finding the correct fit can be difficult but if/when you find the right the team it's a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    A lot of projects at IBM are insanely boring. IBM is more than willing to pigeon hole individuals into positions that don't interest them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a much better job rewarding your top performers.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Excellent environment to gain and expose skills in varied parts of the business. No one need feel as though they are placed in a niche work environment- never to entertain other viable options (including world wide assignments) within organizations.

    Cons

    Lack of focus by management to recognise employee skills levels and assist placing them in appropriate roles within organization. Need to stop the 24x7x365 work day demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a place for everyone in IBM - use your vast reach, world wide to place employees and businesses that ensure better employee retention while providing revenue; instead of "excising" employees to demonstrate better operational profits.
