Fair pay for experienced people
They make you work for 12 to 14 hrs without letting you claim extra hours and very bad work environment

- Colleagues are mostly helpful - Flexible work from home arrangement possible
- Very negative and toxic work environment due to extremely low staff morale due to the many rounds of redundancies. People that are still there are not there because they want to be, but are just waiting for a payout.

IBM offers a very collaborative work environment and I always enjoy working with my coworkers on projects and day-to-day tasks. IBM allows employees to spend time during the work day taking education courses to expand our skill sets
No applicable cons to be listed.

Pleased with middle management: In 2 years, I've had 3 different direct managers who were very attentive and invested in my professional development as a university/new graduate hire. Friendly and helpful work environment: All of my coworkers were extremely knowledgable and helpful, and getting tasks done never felt adversarial. Flexible work environment: many employees work from home and are still able to communicate with each other effectively
Reward scheme is awful to nonexistent: Before the end of my first year, I transitioned from QA to development at my own request to work on a newer product. Despite helping present for a conference and receiving a PBC 1, I wasn't given any sort of raise, promotion or stock options package. My starting salary was far below market value and did not change at all in two years. I know lateral moves seem to be the only way to get a raise these days (I negotiated a 30% raise plus stock options). It felt like a lost cause once I had to initiate negotiation for a pay raise.6
