Former Employee - Summer Intern in New York, NY

I worked at IBM as an intern for less than a year

Pros

I had a co-op with IBM during college.
It was definitely a great experience, and having IBM on my resume won me more interviews the next time I went interviewing.

Cons

The pay was a bit lower than the other job offers I had.
I'm not sure whether that's common across the company, but they definitely seemed to low-ball their compensation and try to pay you in perks (like telecommuting) instead.

    Former Employee - Architect in Murfreesboro, TN

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It was great to get to work from home. I enjoyed traveling most every week and all the time I was able to spend in Boulder. The pay was very fair. If I ever had the chance I would probably go back and work for them again.

    Cons

    Always being worried about being laid off. The constant manager turnover was not good, I had more managers than the years I was employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the 7 years I was there I had 8 managers. Too much management turnover.

    Current Employee - Hardware Engineer in Poughkeepsie, NY

    I have been working at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive compensation
    Flexible hours, depending
    Brilliant coworkers, some of the best in their field
    Poughkeepsie is a great place to live

    Cons

    Regular layoffs, lack of job security due to restructuring
    Cutting small office perks like coffee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut benefits like sponsoring further education back. It will hinder efforts to keep recruiting the best candidates. Consider employee quality of life before making cuts; it's not just a numbers game.
