    Advice to Management

    Honestly, Keep doing what you are doing. I do not know why I've read so many negative reviews on here about IBM. This is my first job out of college, and I have met great people, learned a ton, and look forward to going to work during the week

  4. Good place to work.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Opportunities to grow (only through self-paced learning)

      Cons

      Barely get a raise Put where there is an opening, not always your passion

      Advice to Management

      A manager on the 5th floor shows favoritism. If she like you or ok with you, then congrats. But if you are not in the top 10, then the manager will look at you, turn her nose up and keep walking like you are non-existent. Advice: treat everyone like you want to be treated. Don't act like you are better than others.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Made some good friends out of my coworkers. Pushed to learn new skills

      Cons

      IBM is honestly not a bad place to work, if you don't care about getting paid what you're worth. Which the pay is the MAIN reason we work. IBM treats the employees in the Application Developer role like a lowly peon that should just be used rather than compensated.

      Advice to Management

      Actually pay your employees more...

    • Zero motivation

      Educational Resources (maybe) I am finally out!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Cons

      - Below the minimum industry compensation - Weak benefits - Long hours - 100% travel (Contract specifies only 50%) - Terrible management (care only about numbers and will tell you whatever you want to hear) Never share anything and never trust them. I've seen people get burned because they were naive and trustworthy - Baton Rouge, LA (No offence to this city, but NO thank you, never again. This city is the kingdom...
