Best: 100% company match 401(k) up to 6% salary, with plenty of investment options through Fidelity Investments. Worst: No health & exercise facilities or discounts.
Work/ Life balance dose not exit in reality.
Overall good employee health benefits. Great supporter of work-life balance.
IBM recruiting has a great work/life balance, the capability to work remote is great for eliminating the commute and enhancing productivity.
very flexible vacation plan and telecommuting is an option for portions of your week. College admissions help, free individual or family counseling each year.
All of the benefits are good, health care is a bit pricey
It was alright not the worst and not the best benefits
Offer Health Savings Accounts, 401(K) match, not very good salary increases.
My family if very healthy so IBM provides a High Deductible option with HSA at a very low price.
Best - Selection of health care plans, HSA - Paid vacation days for Full Timers, usual federal/state holidays - Worst - Work From Home is being killed off, in favor for "co-location". Not just go into the closest office near you, but to the office that will be decided for you - in any part of the country. That means uprooting your family and life and moving. - 401K match, but the match is provided at the end of the year. If you leave or are laid off before December 15th, there's nothing. - Bonus, if there is one its not much i.e. low 3 figures. - Healthcare incentives are confusing and difficult to obtain.
