Gender Equality

Manager of my department CLEARLY favored the men. If an issue arose between a male and female employee, the male's side was taken every time. Males constantly received more praise and quicker promotions than the females.

Overall compensation for your work

Tasks required and expected were more than pay grade.

Challenging Work

Was expected to learn materials and how to perform tasks without any directions or guidance.

Workplace Safety

Tops priority was always safety.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire any CEO that has over 25 consecutive quarters in the red.

What I like about the company

Was a technically astute organization to work for. Good people.

What I dislike about the company

It is now just a shell of what it once was. Service oriented. Hardware all but gone. Large computers still assembles in NY state, but of Chinese circuits boards and semiconductors made by foundries all over the globe. One by one, the manufacturing divisions are being shut down, until there will be none left.

Company Culture

Fire everyone to make a profit is the way IBM handles things.

Teamwork

Teams work well, management doesn't.

Internal Communication

Constantly last minute notifications and expected to have already known the information.

Work-Life Balance

Most departments can work from home making it good for families and saves on your transportation costs.
