Company Culture

Everyone knows they could be part of the next layoff because they regularly watch high quality employees leave a few times a year as part of layoffs which arent performance based.

Support from management

Managers are very supportive and really are dedicated to the business needs. I also think they are put in a very tough position to manage the existing workload with fewer and fewer resources. No room for any sort of advancement unless someone retires.

Teamwork

Everyone works really well together and is super professional. Definitely some of the most intelligent people I have worked with. If you join IBM, don't plan to stay more than 3 years unless you're willing to move to wherever there is another opportunity with IBM. Great people to worl woth while you're there!!

Internal Communication

IBM is great at squeezing as much work as they can out of their dedicated employees especially when they prepare for the next layoff 6 months ahead of time while keeping everyone in the dark. Long hours often include not just nights but also weekends to meet aggressive deadlines because some higher up manager makes unreasonanle promises to clients. Of course this dedication and professionalism of non-managers comes with many thanks from the managers, but watch out if IBM mentions moving a solution "to the cloud."

Attitude towards older colleagues

I have heard and read many stories about there being an age discrimination issue at IBM, unless you are in management
Often managers avoid the rampant layoffs and stay forever...many of them actually wear ID pictures and use same pic for internal online photo of themselves when they joined IBM...often 20 years ago.

Career Development

There are many opportunities for learning and completing certifications at IBM, get what you can from this before you leave. As far as career development, just pray you don't get layed off out of the blue...and not much room for career advancement unless someone who has been there for 30+ years retires...then some people move up the line.

Overall compensation for your work

Raises are few and far between, it is known that it often takes roughly years after you start to get a raise at IBM. Raises are determined each October. The thing is, IBM often lets go of people before they reach the October after their third year.

Work-Life Balance

Truly depends on the department and position.

Company Image

Warren Buffett sold all of his stock in IBM fairly recently. Also, you can find dozens of topics and comments online about the lack of job security.

Job Security

Even as a high performer, no job is secure at IBM. Managers uave better job security for certain.

Challenging Work

IBM does some great work but they have very strong competition.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse company which goes over and above to embrace diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • IBM does what IBM wants to do.

What I like about the company

Great for resume and really great people to work with.

What I dislike about the company

All of the above. Also, some of the offices are so quiet you can hear a pin drop because everyone works in high walled cubes.
