Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Some interesting growth areas e.g AI. However, in general still struggling to find the right direction. Constant restructuring cause top talent loss and talent underutilisation. Too much focus on cost cutting result in short-sighted decisions in many cases.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Constant restructuring

Remuneration is commensurate with expectations/workload

After 20 years I have seen many changes in IBM and what was once a great company to work for as it has afforded me many benefits in my personal life, has changed so dramatically and working for IBM has become extremely challenging for most people. From an education/skills point of view, you couldn't ask for more, it is excellent for upskilling oneself.

A great experience

The work was fairly fast paced and interesting. We had a great team that did some fantastic work. At the time IBM were only just beginning to come to terms with working from home and other life balancing options.

Excellent work life balance at IBM

Wonderful times at IBM - so sorry to leave. Excellent mix of travel all throughout ASIAPAC and ANZ. Management changed regularly though and this did affect the balance of our team.

Poor place to contribute your value

Poor place to work and no life future when you are older. The whole company is a business focused machine but no human touch. I would not recommend any one To work Here. Wasting life and time

Long hours but enjoyable teams to work with. I was consistently learning from others. Flexibility was good unless you where dedicated to a client site. Some clients showed little respect for individuals which was a little disappointing however my manager was always proactive

Pros

RUBBISH pay!! Work-life balance started off ok, ended up very restrictive.

The job started off being very good with work-life balance, but it gradually became more and more restrictive, with toilet breaks being monitored via a telephone log-in system. And the pay was insultingly low. Absolute rubbish.
