Company Review

User Experience Designer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

Pros- work / life balance
- 401(k) match is awesome
- flexible work hours
- vacation time is great
- they don't work you to death (at least in my dept.)
- free light rail pass for commuting
- encourage learning, having a mentor, moving around in the company

Cons- the ability to affect change is difficult because the company is so large
- career growth is a slow process

Advice to Senior Management- listen to your designers when designing software products, not developers
- focus on the user experience to retain customers and attract new ones
- avoid pushing feature overload vs. designing a solid experience that customers want
- in companies other than IBM, designers LEAD developoment - not the other way around. It's backwards at IBM (a VERY old mentality in product design)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
