"If you need a job, and can't find one elsewhere, then certainly go ahead and work for IBM. But IBM is a shell of it's former self. It is run by an executive team that has one objective: Get the price of the stock up in the short term so they can sell their options. IBM thinks of employees as Liabilities, not Assets."
"IBM's tunnel vision has left long term customers who still have substantial contracts with IBM for services without the needed resources to effectively complete the work. From what my direct supervisor told me, 90 days after these massive layoffs IBM will be hiring contractors to replace those that were laid off. Many of those being laid off have years of experience and knowledge and will be replaced with resources that are new to the environments. I do not understand how this is putting the customer first."
"IBM is a very good company with several business units working together. It would be an excellent workplace if internal politics were reduced."
"Lots of perks but low pay for the technical role, and shady characters in the sales management roles. Many lawsuits just waiting to happen. A company on the downslide and the stock reflects that."
"I work in this company for almost 4 years now and I should say this is a very competitive organization to work with technically. If you're looking to challenge your skills in all aspects this is the company for you."
"I've worked for IBM India since 2009 and have very good experience in functional testing of various client applications."
"I've been working for GBM based in Dubai, UAE for the last 4 years. GBM is the IBM Representative in the lower Gulf. Below are my review & ratings about GBM."
"Pros: IBM is the first company I worked for that supported a balanced work life (work/home). They provide laptops to all employees. You will work with team across the world (India, China, Germany) which could mean non-standard work schedules. Cons: You are a little fish in a big pond. It's very cut-throat, especially if you have a high salary."
"Waste of time, only good for padding your resume. The pay is awful, the perks are awful, they never do anything on time, they lie and make up excuses about pay, and you can never move up. Once you're in a position, no matter how good you are, they never let you progress in the company."
