Still one of the best places to work on this planet. Especially in the Cyber Security Intelligence field.Executive leadership is 2nd to none.I would recommend entry level to the most experienced to give us a try with one of several thousand opportunities worldwide.
It's is outstanding company to work for I was an IBM baby and continued my late mother's journey to represent IBM with dignity and grace. To be employed by IBM is just not a job it is a privilege of family honesty friendship values and most of all the empowerment of knowing the excitement of what might be announced next by our Scientist. I was found by Mathematicians before I even knew I had a gift not knowing the brilliance of our didn't only exist with math the watched me start typing at 8 words a minute and succeed to 70 as I went on to train myself in graphic presentations I soon with no questions was a have to hire up.
None of what IBM does currently is reminiscent of the company that started a long time ago and became a Fortune 100 powerhouse. IBM lacks a true technology visionary and creative upper management. Although I liked the people, it is about as stuffy and as bureaucratic of an environment as one could imagine. Your boss will treat you well, and among the boots-on-the-ground co-workers, you will find very few 'bad apples' among them. The compensation is pretty good too, as well as the benefits (though the benefits have softened over the years). If you are early in your career, they will probably give you opportunities to advance. However, don't stay at IBM long-term. Rather, use the experience to leverage your career elsewhere. I can tell you as someone who stayed too long: once I became an 'older' worker. I felt that IBM no longer valued me (and I was a well-known subject matter expert in my field). If you stay long enough, expect your chances of being 'resourced' to increase the longer you stay. In my opinion, such resource actions aren't necessarily tied with the performance of the company. They just seem to want 'fresh blood'.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at IBM?
Highlight is the people - everyone is kind, happy to have coffee chats, and help you develop professionally. Very few bad apples in the bunch.Great networking opportunities, senior execs happy to meet and chat, great management overall, top schools, fun culture.
Intern pay is low
IBM provided guidance and mentorship in a continuously learning environment that promoted innovation to clients. All projects are different but every project and training, you learn something new.
It's hard to imagine a place that puts more value on bettering employees that big blue. They really go the extra mile if there's something you want to learn. Most people don't realize that during lunch hours, if you give the security guy a taco, you can go stand inside the super computers. It makes your hair stand on end. It's best described as peeing on an electric fense that's only on maybe 10 or 11 percent. Total rush. The people are great too. I'd be lying if I said one or two of the senior people didn't enjoy standing in the super computer also! Everyone's always in a good mood. Just don't forget the taco.
The walk-in-super-computers, health insurance, filtered snack water
It would be nice if we didn't have to bribe security with tacos, but that's a small price to pay.
Days are very busy and long hours but a sense of purpose is what keeps one energized. The culture is welcoming and at the same time healthy competitiveness among peers. The hardest part of each role was navigating the enormous amount of "blue" tape to get anything done, but at the same time that is what kept me going for so long. Most enjoyable is one feels like they are part of a family - its the people.
