Good projects to work. Work life balance depends on project. Salary and work culture is same as that of other MNCs. Employee benefits are good- health insurance, and others

Great team and supportive environment

I would 100% recommend working for IBM. The work life balance is good and you are given a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. Growth in salary however is a little slow

Great work life balance and leave policy. Forget pay rise. Great projects with different tech stacks. Every year manager gets changed so you can't ask about pay rise

Productive workplace

Workload depends on project. Job security is less. Culture is same as that of any other software company.Company policies are good. Salary increment depends on performance.

Politics and management issue

Pros :Nothing. Cons:So many. Management plays politics with you. They prefer locals.No work-life balance. Getting a project was a pain. No helpful senior. No career growth and professional Development. Payscale is very less. no promotion.

Very nice

It was a very good experience at IBM as my first job. The colleagues there are truly very cordial and helpful. I could learn a lot from them. People are sensible and understanding.

Not good for Fresh Graduates Looking for Developer Roles

IBM GBS and GTS are not recommended for Freshers looking for Developer roles as these business units mostly have administrative and operational work, which doesn't require much technical work, leave aside coding skills. Leave policy and WFH relaxations are great and one of the best in the industry

Less pay, too much work..

They hire less people to save money and thus workload is too much. Weekend working is expected and no work life balance is there. Managers micromanage too much.


Unlimited sick leave, although you can't take them often if your manager is not good.


Long hours, less pay, too much micromanagement.

Sweatshop in India. They treat you like cheap labour and managers are trash. No proper KT is done when you join, but they are quick to put responsibilities on your shoulder - just do they can blame you for issues. Very negative environment.


Good company to retire at.


No learning, old tech, politics, cheap managers, everyone wants to get ahead by pushing others down.

Relaxed work environment in general. Varies from team to team.

Everything varies from team to team. Generally a relaxed and flexible work environment. Amount of learning is highly dependent on projects. Generally it's on the low end. You will get plenty of time to do process improvement and will be appreciated. Most teams will have very high visibility from client.


Work life balance. Liberal work from hone policy. Programs for wellness.


Poor compensation, slow paced, legacy technologies

Indeed says my language here is inappropriate. You think what you can think about this company!

Pathetic place to be, you're treated like slaves and cattle, too much micromanagement, no help provided to freshers, seniors don't work - they just butter their seniors, too many "directors" in a team, long useless meetings, sub-standard salaries.


Job security maybe


Negative environment, no respect for employees, politics and buttering at its peak.

Good company

Good and relaxed work place to work. Work culture is good and no need to bother about pressure. It depends on project. If you want relaxed work place IBM is the company.

Flexible and collaborative workplace

IBM has a very chilled, fun loving, flexible work environment. Everything was awesome apart from the paycheck. My work was regularly appreciated - but seldom rewarded.
