Being a Project Manager, it was a fun working with IBM throughout my tenure of 7 years in India, Australia, Canada. * learned professional way of handling critical projects. * Project Scaling * Managing Project with in time and within budget. * Team Collaboration * Team mentoring and building activities * The fun part of working with IBM is work life balance and friendly/open work culture where you can openly share ideas and thoughts and see those implementing in the organization.
IBM is very large and as a result the executive leadership is very focused on their own success. The delivery teams are all very good and skilled but eventually cost take out initiatives make it very difficult to support the customers.
I was able to work from home, I also managed cross functional teams there were geographically dispersed on various project that I worked on. The organizational culture provides you with opportunities to make critical decisions on your own.

This is what I am seeking is to work remotely as I have been doing so for the past 5 years. I was able to produce more efficiently working remotely. All meetings were with many resources from different locations so if I was at the office, I would see no one for meetings.
The sky's the limit. Within IBM, you have opportunities for growth, which I believe is world class in the industry. Your career ambitions and success are supported. Your goals can be achieved, and are directly linked to the effort you want to give. Always a pleasure working with fellow IBM'ers
Awesome work environment, professionalism is top notch
Accepting incoming calls from customers, max 100 calls every shift. Assisting customers depending on their needs and the line of business you are under. However, rest days are not fixed, schedules are not fixed as well. As PMA, work has changed. However still working on a night shift everyday is a risk for the health.
High pay due to overtime and other activities opportunity
Stress, lack of leep, health risk
Spent 7 years in one department under the same manager, then the next 7 years on another team I lost count of the managers, executives, and senior management team - it was like a merry go round. Constant churn meant no ownership, lack of knowledge and expertise, and an unhappy, positive environment to work in. Management is too top heavy and lacked integrity. Cost cutting starts at the bottom, where the work is done. Should be cut from top down where the large paycheques are handed out. Non-management jobs constantly being sent offshore where work ethics are different. Impact of offshoring to business is noticeable, yet IBM sells it to the client as seamless. They don't walk the talk. It became too impersonal and uncaring to work there any longer.
Unfortunately the more business IBM is involved in, the less it values its employees. There is no reasonable explanation as to why current valuable employees are being cut, while inexperienced and incompetent staff are given jobs.
IBM's PMO for GTS provides challenging opportunities for one to deliver solutions by using multiple PM approaches. Hitting customer service levels is key but working with amazingly talented, dedicated people makes all the difference
