worst pay scale

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
worst pay and less focus by managers on growth of employee.. even though the company enables learning and development the employees cannot make good use of it because of managers. Manager is everything at IBM.

Positive Learning, Growth Experience

During my two-year tenure as a Java Developer at IBM India, I had a highly enriching experience that significantly contributed to my professional growth. The supportive environment created by my manager and colleagues made a lasting impact.My manager's guidance and the mentorship provided by my colleagues were instrumental in honing my technical skills, making me more proficient in Java development. Beyond the technical aspect, their humility and approachability fostered a positive work atmosphere.My time at IBM India allowed me to gain a deep understanding of project dynamics and cutting-edge technologies. The knowledge and skills I acquired during this period have been invaluable to my career. Overall, IBM India not only provided me with a solid foundation in Java development but also instilled in me the importance of teamwork and mentorship, making it a truly exceptional experience in my professional journey.


Productive People, Good Mentors

Productive and fun workplace

Management is good. All depends on ur domain. If there is no funding, they will not see how much ever experience you have in that project, they'll release you with 1 month of notice.


Wfh opportunities, free coffee and tea


Long working hours, no job security

Work culture and work life balance

The work culture here is good but even return to office is now mandatory here and flexible work hours.Hike would be very low and salary is less compared to market standards

Good Company

Good Company to Work -- Mostly depend on Manager Decision -- If your manager is bad then you need to look for some other work.. Luckily in my 14 Years with IBM Not worked under any Bad Managers..

nice place to work

nice place to work. Good Pay as per market.Cons: Manager driven company, no HR department everything depends on manager decision only. Unlimited sick leaves

Best place to work

You would surely regret coming out from there and it is such a place. The work culture and the people's behavior is just awesome. The only disadvantage is that there is no good hike and a slow growth in your career is what you can expect. Otherwise a very very good place to work.

Good Company

IBM is a very good company. I joined IBM as a lateral hire, hence my salary is good, there are multiple opportunities to learn, improve skills. Multiple projects are available.


Good working environment


Sometimes your lead will be demotivating, but managers are good

Don't stick in the same role

Here you don't get promoted unless you have good rapport with manager. It is good as a company when you have good team and manager. It's a manager company rather employees

Different work place

Existing Employees should be more helpful to the new comers. Not given time to understand the process before that itself put into work and asked about daily Targets.
