Advisory Software Engineer
in Austin, TX

"Valuable experience. Access to a lot of companies (clients) from around the globe while working for a company with high name recognition. They're constantly trying to reinvent themselves in a highly volatile environment. They do change for the sake of change without a clear vision or grasp of a realistic outcome. They're not the IBM most companies expect. They overcommit and underdeliver."

"I worked for IBM for almost 15 years. The company culture has definitely degraded over the years. They no longer have the reputation or customer commitment they used to have. Now it's just another company."

"IBM is a great company to work for but not as good as the IBM that I joined in 1984. Great benefits and pay."

"I worked for IBM for 22 years. It was enjoyable, and provided me with opportunities to move around to different jobs within the company. Unfortunately, the last few years were very unnerving, as so many jobs were being moved to other places."

Advisory Software Engineer
in Grand Rapids, MI

What do you like about working at IBM?

"The resources IBM can throw at a problem are pretty amazing."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you're looking to rise through the ranks, this is a company with a lot of opportunity. If what you want to do is write great software, think about looking elsewhere."

What don't you like about working at IBM?

"For being such a large and profitable software company, IBM isn't very good at building successful software teams. The company is not great at creating the most productive environment in which to write software."
