    i think overall the compensation and health benefits are adequate for the region but not enough to retain star performers

    Overall benefits are very good. My wife works for a fortune 500 telcomm and the benefits aren't even close.

    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

    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.

    Star Star Star Star Star Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    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.
