Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at IBM as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Nil, there is no reason to work here

Cons

People are disposable, don't bother going the extra mile, they don't care or appreciate it, it's expected . Then when they have no further use for you they make you redundant. Especially the ANZ Law Department, 8 redundancies at the same time they were recruiting. The replacements started on the same day the staff who were made redundant were leaving - Poor form IBM!!!

Advice to Management

Get rid of the lot of them, all in in for what they can get, they don't put in leave forms and take leave, they then accumulate their leave balances and take extended breaks. Oh and if your a woman, don't get pregnant, as soon as you do they want you gone.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training is fantastic, there are plenty of opportunities to move into different roles.

    Cons

    It's a very structured 9 to 5 Monday to Friday environment. If you are going for a Tech Support or Sales job expect a call center type of setup, that is quite inflexible and impersonal.
    The location in Dublin is quite far from the city center and poorly served.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from a call center environment and trust your employees more.
