"Used to be great company to work for"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - IT Specialist
Former Employee - IT Specialist

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Salary, benefits, culture, opportunity for growth

Cons

All the pros have changed to cons, mass lay-offs of long term regular employees. Movement toward contractor only enviroment

Advice to Management

Stop managing to each quarter, think long term and remember employees are stock holders too.

    Pros

    innovative technology
    lots of opportunity to learn
    good benefits
    if you have good understanding with manager then vacations are very flexible.
    Most IMP: In IBM, you have to keep "go and get it" attitude otherwise you ll just drift with the organization and not standout.

    Cons

    Since the company keeps acquiring new companies hence there is alot of influx of people of all types(managers/engineers) hence promotions are extremely difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider promotions and salary hikes. People want to work in IBM but you have to provide continuous growth not only to wall street but also to employees.

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

    Pros

    Great company as a whole, really invested in the new hires to learn the material. Really appreciate all the training they provided

    Cons

    As an excited, motivated new hire into IBM, I found that I was doing nothing and in a large company with so many people, it's easy to get forgotten. That's why I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to not only nurture the young talent, but need to give them challenging projects with upper level visibility that will make them want to stay at a company. With so many startups offering so many more perks and better salary, IBM will need to re-evaluate how they hire new fresh graduates.
