Avis d'employé sur IBM
Great place to work!
I worked at IBM full-time for more than 2 years Pros Loads of information to learn and grow. Depends which wing one gets a job, work culture changes from one dept to the other.. generally, they do not micromanage. Expect employees to be responsible. Do not expect a good bonus. One can negotiate a good salary though. IBM GBS is the services wing and the work culture and over all atmosphere including bonuses depend on how. Cons Too process oriented and hence slow for innovation. Advice to Management Make processes leaner

Complex reporting hierarchies within Global business services team at IBM with expectations that weren't commensurate with ground realities. Once hired, as a consultant I was placed on a specific project for a finite time. The discrepancy between my salary and what IBM charged the end client as professional services fee was huge. The benefits of working as a consultant within GBS weren't that great - typical 2 week vacation with minimum health and dental benefits. IBM's coaching/employee review model was ridden with bureaucratic styled red tape - feedback on a consultant's performance was gathered from many bosses - Delivery manager, project manager, profile manager, team lead, and end client. This rendered the review process to be elaborate and ineffective - the model lacked the spirit and intent of coaching and feedback. Work assignments lacked collaboration, and employees were silo'ed into cubicles within sub-teams/teams/departments - an environment not conducive for teamwork.
