Mediocre Experience
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.

Good place to start. Company culture have changed over the years. Performance evaluation and compensation structure was designed to save company money.

"be thankful you have a job"
I was part of a group that had been outsourced to IBM from a customer as part of a contract. From the very beginning it was clear that we would be giving a lot up. Our benefits weren't as good. Our ability to bill for overtime changed from time-and a-half to straight time, and then it was removed altogether. We would work overtime hours and BILL these hours to the customer (our former employer), but we would not be paid for this very same overtime. This does not make for a happy work environment. When IBM celebrated a major anniversary, there was a barbecue. Before our team could attend we received an e-mail telling us there wasn't any food left. If you are a contractor at IBM, be aware that they love to furlough contractors at short notice for weeks at a time.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
No hope for advancement.
