IBM provides cheap IT services to clients who think they will benefit from outsource the service to a 3rd party.The money making is done through their employees. The company will not invest a dime on employees unless clients pay.The plan is to reduce the amount of people to a minimum, have them work 24/7/365 and bill your client.The 40 hours a week will not get you far, no OT pay, your employee ‘ratings’ depends on the free hours you provide and you are compared to your peers every period.only the ones who provide free (many) hours may see salary increases or bonuses that are a joke.over the years, i saw people dropping like flies and rush to a hospital after being overworked.most companies sign the deal with IBM will not renew after realizing they’ve been had.You will find no love for IBM from employees and management alike.unless you have no others option.. keep looking

Subcontracting for IBM: Pros: documentation and call in support for contract techs is pretty good. Reasonable compensation for gas. Cons: Often had to drive an hour or more for a client. Drive time is not paid. Low wages for subcontractors.
Good company to work with but with limited Salary hike. however, work life balance is extremely good. I was part of IBM India office. International Business Machines (IBM), is a global technology company that provides hardware, software, cloud-based services and cognitive computing. Founded in 1911 following the merger of four companies in New York State by Charles Ranlett Flint, it was originally called Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company.
Complex reporting hierarchies within Global business services team at IBM with expectations that weren't commensurate with ground realities. Once hired, as a consultant I was placed on a specific project for a finite time. The discrepancy between my salary and what IBM charged the end client as professional services fee was huge. The benefits of working as a consultant within GBS weren't that great - typical 2 week vacation with minimum health and dental benefits. IBM's coaching/employee review model was ridden with bureaucratic styled red tape - feedback on a consultant's performance was gathered from many bosses - Delivery manager, project manager, profile manager, team lead, and end client. This rendered the review process to be elaborate and ineffective - the model lacked the spirit and intent of coaching and feedback. Work assignments lacked collaboration, and employees were silo'ed into cubicles within sub-teams/teams/departments - an environment not conducive for teamwork.

The legendary company. Work with skilled professionals. Great education programs for employees. High salary. High internal culture. High standards. Modern offices. Great opportunities for growth skills up. Working here a great way to become a professional. Hi security standards.
Not a good company to work for because they treat employees like a number. Salary raises are only for people who do IBM work all day and night which is unreasonable for people who want a life outside of the company.
I learnt how to program and fix minimal problems with machinery. We inspect pieces of our products to insure its perfection coming out of the machines
The salary and benefits are definitely the best part of this job. Employees are treated fairly and with respect. The job itself is easy but mentally draining. Sometimes you'll watch a line making one product for hours. That's a major con for me because I'm used to having a more physical job.
I worked at IBM full-time for more than 2 years Pros Loads of information to learn and grow. Depends which wing one gets a job, work culture changes from one dept to the other.. generally, they do not micromanage. Expect employees to be responsible. Do not expect a good bonus. One can negotiate a good salary though. IBM GBS is the services wing and the work culture and over all atmosphere including bonuses depend on how. Cons Too process oriented and hence slow for innovation. Advice to Management Make processes leaner
The overall great benefit is that you get to work from home. However, if you come in on a contract basis you will not get any benefits and the wages are very low compared to the ever rising cost of living. Mind you, I worked for IBM in 2016. Maybe things have changed.
