Approves of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My coworkers were nice and helpful. The job was not too stressful. The facilities were pleasant and quiet.

Cons

My projects were not interesting. The team suffers from knowledge siloing; W3 is large and difficult to navigate. Project managers were expected to maintain wikis to help management and teammates assess progress on projects, which was time-consuming.

Advice to Management

Maintaining wikis is burdensome. New employees need better documentation to get started.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee benefits, work from home

    Cons

    Focus on maximizing billable hours pushes employees to work 50-hour week as the norm, then put in more hours to meet overtime targets. Employee performance rating system embodies unfair treatment of quality employees and devalues employee sacrifices. Managers reinforce the message that employees are dispensable puppets that should do what their told in the best interest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    IBM will continue to lose valuable knowledge capital as experienced professionals re-prioritize their lives over IBM's profit margin.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work culture. Good benefits with support for overall career and personality development. Very open about contacting anyone working within IBM anywhere in the world with supporting technical tools to do the same.

    Cons

    It is a big big company and what you are working on could be similar to someone else's work in IBM and you won't even realize it.
