"I worked for IBM for 10 years and was part of 3 groups. IBM has some great individual contributors, but the management structure is terrible."
"IBM and IBM Research has changed a lot over the many years that I worked for them. The focus of IBM Research has moved from longer-term to shorter-term work, and from more academic topics to more practical ones. In the last few years, the pendulum has swung to very immediate concerns, driven by IBM's 2015 profit plan. For the last several years, I was in the Services Research department. That group was reorganized several times while I was there, and was searching for a mission. It didn't find one, at least not one that made sense to me. That was discouraging for me, and I believe for my colleagues. IBM's employment practices are excellent. Pay and benefits are good. Lots of flexibility regarding when to work, remote work, etc. The people around me were really smart, engaging, eager folks. They could accomplish a lot with better leadership."
"I started work in early August 2013. I was informed that the job would be remote with less than 30% travel. I traveled more than 90% of the time and the hours were exceedingly long. The job title and description didn't match the job given. There was no competitive pay rate to join or stay. I don't see the company continuing business in the area at its current rate. Very high turnover rate with employees."
"Senior Application Developer adept at application development, testing and optimization. My job involved COBOL application development, including coordinating ground-up planning, programming and implementation for core modules. I have had experience in production support activities more than 7 years."
"Decent company. Looks good on resume, and decent starting salary. Lack of professional development, no real raises or bonuses. The consulting side, even in their strategy practice will mostly revolve around system implementations and program management work."
"Good work culture, maintains the prestigious standards set by IBM."
"Good for career growth and development. Very diversity-friendly."
"Good place to explore your knowledge."
"I worked for IBM March 2012 till April 2014, was just laid off."
"It's a great company to start your career."
"The company is good to work for."
"I have been working with IBM and it was quite a nice experience working with two different projects in 1.3 years."
