    Vacation is great but not enough time to use it all

    StarStarStarStarStar Current VP in New York, New York State

    Still very good benefits, but that have declined over the years. Many of the same program, but the scope of what is provided has gone done. The real change has been on the packages being offered when RA's happen, which are now capped regardless of number of years of service.

    It's a company with a deep commitment to diversity, civility, and ethics. It's been around and reinventing itself for more than 100 years so it's here to stay.

    IBM provided comprehensive and generous benefits that even took into account the regional insurance market. They also provided excellent time-off benefits to new parents.

    Good Health Care, match gifting contributions, vacation and sick time are all a plus

    The discounts are pretty good. The 401k is one of the best, % match, although you just get it if you work the entire year and don't leave the company prior 12/31

    Best benefit is 12 weeks of paternity leave.

  • Dec 09, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Des Moines, Iowa

    Best: If you put in 5% they'll put in 6% Worst: They wait till the end of the year to give their match. So, if you put in $ for 11 months and then leave the company in early December you won't get their match.

    The flexibility on working from home was an added advantage. Being as a contractor, the standard benefits does n't apply.
