IBM offers a competitive benefits program, designed to help employees build a solid financial foundation for meeting a diverse array of needs — health care, income protection, retirement security, and personal interests. As of January 1, 2012, newly hired regular employees are eligible for the programs described here.
i think overall the compensation and health benefits are adequate for the region but not enough to retain star performers
Health care is really good and top notch
Tremendous amount of perks including many volunteering oppurtunities.
Overall benefits are very good. My wife works for a fortune 500 telcomm and the benefits aren't even close.
health benefit premiums are good for the employee, pricey for dependents of employees
Work at home is the best part. Although that is coming to an end. And the 401k Match, although that has decreased for new hires and you don't get it until the very end of the year
ibm provides great benefits including: 401k plan, health insurance, vacation & paid time off, retirement plan, flexible working hours, working remotely, and many more.
Best thing of IBM, option of Work of home and has good work culture, Bad part for IBM India not offering permanent residence in US.
Vacation and personal days are about 4 weeks for all employees. Once a person is with IBM for 10 years or more you can add an extra week to it.
Benefits are weak overall. Expensive health plans with very high deductibles. 401k match is only once a year only after a year. So if you start in July, you'll get no match the first year, 50% match the second year, and not until the third year will you get a full match.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
