    IBM's benefit package is excellent, however, the cost for family coverage is very high

    Great benefits, including 401k match, flexible work schedule, good vacation time, health benefits and maternity leave. I recommend this company.

    Star Star Star Star Star Current Employee in San Francisco, California

    Fairly comprehensive set of benefits including 401K match with great funds and lots of options to choose from for health care based on need and budgets

    No 401k match for new employees. Medical benefits are fantastic, bar none, never seen better for a lower wage job.

    5% 401K Matching, generous vacation days

    401K Match at 6% is great. they hold back the payout until mid December. If you leave before that you get nothing.

    good company perks, including contribution towards a fitness device... but holding 401k match until year-end is another way the company demonstrates focus on bottom line above employees

    Star Star Star Star Star Former Human Resources Professional in New York, New York State

    IBM used to provide best in class in benefits, now they're just middle of the road. Cost of health insurance keeps going up at a faster pace than salary increases. The annual Growth Drive Profit (GDP) bonus is a joke, lots of hype, very little pay-out.

    Star Star Star Star Star Former SAN Administrator in Columbia, Missouri

    You have to be rateed a 1 or a 2 at your year end review to be eligible for a Growth Driven bonus, which is fair.

    Star Star Star Star Star Former Technical Solutions Architect in Austin, Texas

    The base pay was good. But success rarely depended on my performance but by team performances. When ever we made quota, then next year they would be raised by a huge percentage, until they be came unattainable. So I did not count on bonuses.
