Highly process oriented

A process-oriented company with dignified methods and systems. It's really a great company to work with. It may not easy to get promotions, that's understandable in such huge MNCs.

Bad Experience working for IBM

Worked with IBM for about 4 years. No Career Advancements. Same routine work. Had lot of internal opportunities to move but manager would not release. Finally out of frustration quit the job and provided feedback to HR for poor support of manager. IBM black listed me to never join them again.

Pros

Technically Strong Company

Cons

Poor Management

Recommended but upgrade yourself

IBM is a brand where culture talks it's brand. High work life balance and opportunities in many areas. Lot of learning experience. But someone need to upgrade himself constantly, otherwise will be stagnant. Process complexity is high and obsolete, but work culture is good in Bangalore. Salary is std or below std. Good for people who wants stability.

Pros

work life balance, work culture, people, learning curve, help, IT infrastructure

Cons

salary, process
