Decent work for a fresher

It is a good place to begin your career at. You get to learn a lot. The workplace is not that strict and is laid back. It is a fun place to work at. You come across a lot of diverse groups of people.

Good place to work

The Carrier growth is limited. Process is very important. It is not a employee driven company rather a manager driven company. I enjoyed working in IBM as I was getting involved in projects and accounts which I directly do not manage, as it is a huge company and has a huge client base I had a lot of extra projects to work on and i simmply loved it.

Process and Work Oriented

IBM is a great place to work and can manage work-life balance. IBM is more of process-oriented and documented. People work in IBM usually for a longer period than any other organization.

Productive and fun workplace

Excellent work-life balance. Very flexible work culture, not too much workload on one person which is very healthy. Employees gel very well with each other. However, the flip side is the pay, which is severely compromised, due to which majority of the people are compelled to look out for other opportunities.

IBM has lost its shine these days.

IBM is good company for Work From Home only. No financial or policy benefits being at higher bands in company, however, it is dangerous in terms of internal and/or client Billing.

Cons

dangerous company for high band employess, being on High band no financial or policy benefits.

Good opportunity

It's impressive and great working environment. I learned how to prepare for effective DR and Cyber recovery solution across heterogenous technology. The management is good. It has been new day all the time with new solutions research and engineering to integrate and build the business recovery solution. For technical, it's great place to work.

Cons

Long hours
