Slow Workplace

Everything moves very slow and work can be done in 2 or 3 months. Everything goes through 6-7 different levels of approvals. Felt like a sloth every time I was working.

There are really good projects and teams ,, worse projects and teams too

What is the best part of working at the company?Work from home, Less work, coz of more processes. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Non practical policies ex. 100% utilisation, identify some code reuse from ibm code repository, launching coding competitions to all ibmers and finally forced to declare winners from within the same project ; managers and leads with no technical understanding ; pressure from management to manipulate like showing fake code reuse,, denial of our leaves arguing abt utilisation. This s abt one project I worked on , there were other good projects and good managers What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Depends on project you are in and your lead and managerWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Do some minimum work ,, try to socialise and keep good company with others and managers.

As a software engineer at IBM, I gained valuable experience working on large-scale projects, collaborating with diverse teams, and leveraging cutting-edge technologies to deliver innovative solutions. The company's emphasis on innovation and excellence challenged me to grow both professionally and personally, and I developed a deep appreciation for IBM's commitment to using technology to make a positive impact on the world. Overall, my time at IBM was a rewarding and transformative experience that has helped shape my career as a software engineer.

Great place to start if you're early in your career, growth and pay is not good.

1. Great place for freshers or someone who's early in their career.2. Pay is not good, I feel like hike is not based on performance but more on individual interaction with manager.

Didn't see any diversity

Rating of lady employees and Male employee are done at the same pace. Lot of regional politics makes a women employee rated badly. Diversity only in slogans not in reality

Just like a fish market no job security

Worst place to start the work. No job security. Differences between permanent and contract employees. Contract Employees are sometimes hired for a duration of 1 month or even 15 days and the released from projects to just show billing to the client.
