Site management makes it fun to come to work. Culture is a mix of old IBMers and the generation of IBMers. Collaborative environment with different departments you can be exposed to.
Pros
Tech giant; lots of offerings
Cons
balances revenue with periodic layoffs

Big corporate culture in every sense of the term. Showing initiative is not really appreciated unless end result is overwhelming positive. Management does becomes deaf when delivering a negative assessment of a situation and suggested actions.
Pros
Technical infrastructure (except for reliance on Lotus Notes)
Cons
Lack of company direction, Company goals have no modification based on division dynamics. Micromanagement of tasks, Expense restrictions interfere with accomplishing goals

I worked in GTS for 4 years and experienced a couple of reorgs. The reorg decisions came from higher levels and really do not make sense in the eyes of people who do the daily work. No surprise we keep losing business.
Pros
work / life balance
Cons
bad business decisions

Parts of the company are still great however there is an over reliance on the matrix structure resulting in bloated management that rarely provides actual leadership. There are brilliant and talented people but often they live in fear of the next reorg eliminating their positions. Reorgs often take place without any apparent regard for how it will impact current customers or future technology requirements. Rather than cut headcount, reskilling and retraining would be less damaging to intellectual capital and organizational knowledge.
Pros
Talented people
Cons
Capricious adherence to commissions plan

They don't provided guided training. Every manager i've worked under want you to pull yourself up by your booth strap. It is not the greatest place to work. Could be a lot more personable.

Large amount of both skills and knowledge education options available. This education is needed to battle through the processes in offerings and solutions that are always fought for in multiple groups.

IBM used to be a great place to work, hire the best and keep the best. Their compensation was in place to match, with bonuses, regular raises and good pension/401k. Over the past decade, that has changed, bonuses have become tiny and raises are non-existent. Employees are now considered as names on a spreadsheet to be moved around with little so no say in there future at the company.
Pros
Work from Home
Cons
Subpar compensation

IBM has a variety of culture and opportunities to grow within the industry. I have only been with IBM a short period of time, and in my short period it has been a positive family type cohesiveness.

During my tenure, there were multiple layoffs every year as work shifted outside of the United States. It became so routine that you were numb every time you received an email from a colleague informing you of their termination from the company.

Company makes great effort to ensure employee inclusion on top level leadership decisions and policies.

The culture at IBM is second to none with technology professionalism, career development, and education. Great pride working at IBM. A staple company that continues to lead and evolve with the times. Can't say that with any other company. Will definitely be around for another 100 years.

Felt like there was no room for growth and you were forever stuck in the support organization. We asked to take on more work, then they cut our pay by 10%. Never got merit increases even when exceeding expectations. Compared to other companies, was severly under paid as was most of my colleagues. Why we all left.

IBM has a lot of potential, but the issue is the leadership holds people back. There are a lot of qualified people that work hard and don't complain. The management there seems to be under-qualified and gossip about those who work hard. Very disappointed.

Was a great company of innovation. However, during recent times, it's lost its way in and fell behind in cloud computing and personal laptops, serves. This has reflected in the way the company treats and compensates it's employees.

They will hire you under false pretenses. I was hired as a banker and ended up doing a dual role as a teller. I found this out my first day at the branch. This was totally different from what I interviewed for. The manager was all over the place and the associates at the branch were very unpleasant and there was a lack of team work.
