Not your typical office job... Although, most positions are 9-5, the work schedule is quite flexible and they allow you the time you have to express your talent and ambitions to help you excel and exceed at your career! Awesome job IBM!

Decent pay, benefits, work/life balance

Decent benefits and work/life balance. If you have a good manager, you are able to move up and take on more responsibility. If you have a bad manager, well... at any company it's hard to succeed without one.

Lack luster start - takes time to get momentum

I was very excited to work at IBM, unitl I started and I wasn't given actual work for about 8.5 months. Usually the initial training (aka doing nothing) is about 3 months, but my own experience was a bit longer than normal due to poor hiring decisions - hiring too many employees for a single new client that ended up terminating the contract.I would go weeks without talking to my direct manager, even though he sat two desks over from myself. Although I do not blame him, he was new to the role when I started and I don't think it was in his job description to be constantly checking on me. He was a very nice guy otherwise.The starting salary and benefits are great for young adults starting their career. IBM is a great place to grow your skills. There is room for advancement but it is a very long term commitement, upwards of a decade for a management role.

Pros

Salary and Benefits

Cons

Poor Intial Training Process

Very Good

Its an awesome culture. Very collaborative, competitive and relatively no pressure environment. There is awesome scope for professional/career progression. Lots of tools/learning portals to update skillsets and learning new technologies.

Unsecured work environment and management

Unethical business practices and investment strategies by management. Company does not stay neutral in decisions made with the partners that take on in political views. Would never work for them.

Excellent company to work for

Collaborative atmosphere to work in. Remote work has been normal for many years. You will be part of a high performance team, so long hours are sometimes required and expected and paid for.
