IBM Employee Review

Good company

Good Company to work. We need to reskill regularly as per Market demand.Always need to have some backup skills in case if we don't have the project available matching our primary skills.

A good place to work but not great

The best part of working in IBM is the flexibility that you get. Work from home makes your life easy. In terms of career, if you are a self motivated person who is always ready to learn, then IBM is a great place. It has lots of learning materials for upgrading skills and also promotes certification and re-skilling programs.But even if you upgrade skills you will not be able to showcase them. On-site opportunities are very less and I have seen H1B visa getting expired due to lack of projects. In projects also preferential treatment is given to those who support office politics. Talented and hard working employees are not recognised. Compensation and year-end bonus clearly shows preferential treatment. Also salary increment is really less compared to market standards.

Pros

Flexibility, work from home, leaves

Cons

Compensation, Onsite opportunities

Retain skilled Talent and Get rid of Old employees...let the fresh talent grow

Big Blue is definetely the Giant of IT Industry, being over 130 year old company IBM has definetely made it's mark in the industry with it's innovations and ideas.But, it's really high time to get rid of old talent who are sitting in their places not making way for fresh talent to move ahead and grow. As a result the fresh talent either spills over to other companies or gets rotten under the old talent loosing their growth aspirations on the name of job security and comfort. Most of people and managers who don't have the technical capability or understanding are in the most prominent positions and decision making roles and waiting for their retirement.They don't grow and doesn't let the fresh talent grow and the company doesn't grow.

Pros

Huge Knowledge Base, Lots of Learning Possibilities, Growth Possibilities, Work & Personal Life Balance

Cons

Managers, RCM and some self proclaimed (employees)Managers, No Salary Hikes, No/Low Annual Bonus
