IBM offers a competitive benefits program, designed to support employees and their families across all dimensions of health: physical, mental, social, financial, and purpose.
The best would be many choices, we aren't limited to simply one or two options. In our state of Texas, we have 6 options for Medical The worst, isn't necessarily IBM's fault, premiums are higher than they should be.
It's always changing but the benefits are great and they really have a great package
401k was a fabulous opportunity to invest in my future. I really appreciated this opportunity.
Great 401K Match, Medical could be better,
Best WFH policy, great work culture
Health insurance, and 401 k are all standard. they do a pretty good job at having the right people guide you through the process of picking the products once you are hired. Vacation could be better, we dont get the usual presidents day or mlk and personal vacation increases with seniority in the company
IBM withholds all 401k matching until the end of each year. If you are caught up in a layoff just before the end of the year, IBM will not match your 401K contributions.
Company 401K match is only vested when you stay past Dec 15th of each year.
401K match only received once a year if you are still employed as of that date.
No benefits for full-time supplemental employees. Worst than that, they don't even allow us to apply for permanent positions. One would think that if you became a supplemental employee or contractor with IBM first to get your foot in the door it would be easy to advance from there and move into a full-time permanent role. NEGATIVE. Do not be mislead. I have applied for many full time permanent positions over the past 3 years on both IBM's external and internal career site, and the response if always the same: "this position is only for internal employees" or, "your current contract is preventing us from hiring you permanently". That's a bunch of jive. My contract is terminate at will. The best route, is to not accept any contract or supplemental work in the beginning. And yes I do have a bachelor of science degree in Information Technology. I would advise all IBM contractors and supplemental employees to go on a global strike. Maybe then IBM will see the benefit of hiring them permanently.
