Pros

Immensely proud of the achievements shown in the 100x100 Centennial film (you should watch it if you work in IT).

Cons

Feels like it's peaked - I've been here 10 years and the level of morale has never been lower, mostly down to petty penny pinching when all around there are bigger problems ignored.

The PBC system is demoralising & most people I know are looking around to what's available due to the constant cost-cutting and lack of payrises - once your joining salary is set you fall steadily further behind the outside world as each year passes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Scrap the unfair and divisive PBC system, better share the profit created by the employees for the shareholders.

    Pros

    If you want to come at any time and want to go at any time then this company is good for you. Nobody is recording your in/out time. you can have work life balance.
    Infinite sick leave is the best thing here. People have gone for 9 months of sick leave without any problem.
    Work from home facility.
    If you get a chance to go to onsite (USA only) then it is gr8.

    Cons

    Not very talented or challenging people here. Most of them are lazy. They are ready to point finger to someone else. No increment for new joinees for 2 years. After 2 years you will get maximum 6-7% hike after all hard work and great rating. Variable is just to show on ur offer letter. You get only 10% of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some hike to people. Improve management. Most of the manager have no sense and leadership skills (only few show management skills).

    Pros

    Working at IBM offers lots of skilled collegues and endless opportunities for personal and professional development. Rarely IBM sets any limits as long as you got a good reason.

    Cons

    IBM is a big company and sometimes too bureaucratic and heavy to deal with being a sales person who only wants the best for the customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    over the past 5 years IBM has changed in a manner of control of reporting that takes away some of the attention to the customers
