Great Company to work for.

Notes Administrative/Web Developer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at IBM ISSC full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI had a lot of lead way to be creative in my position. The managers that I worked for were very supportive and were great leaders. IBM has a fast paced working environment, which is great. All of the teams that I worked with were very co-opportive and friendly as we were all working towards the same goal.

ConsThey had too many layoffs. Upper management needs to find a different way to trim the budget.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople making layoff decisions should be more aware of the work done by those employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

IBM was a great company to work for.

Project Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at IBM ISSC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIBM had a good compensation and benefits package and they wanted their employees to have a good work environment by providing ergonomic chairs, efficient work space and lighting.

ConsLike with a lot of companies, there are managers that are not use to minorities and it shows in their interactions with them.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers need more diversity training especially when they were raised in a community that was not diversity inclusive.

very good work life balance, strong relationship with Japan, not really IBM

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

I worked at IBM ISSC full-time for less than a year

ProsVery good work life balance. If you want to work on projects connecting with Japan, it is the place to go.

ConsVery high turnover ratio. People just leave. Compared with IBM itself the salary is a little bit low.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the incentive. Break the wall between itself and IBM.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If you would like to melt in a company and be a needle in a hew stack, this is the place to work at.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at IBM ISSC

ProsMaternity leave does not mean you will loose your job. You will not loose your job, if you are a middle performer either.

ConsNot a place for creativity and motivation. A strong personality will never grow big. Management makes sure, only management alike characters get promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe less stroppy because of your career and take more care of the people who are working for you. Shutting people up is not a moral option.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
