Great place to work and present your talent on the desired platform.IBM cannot be compared with any organization as far as i have worked in my career.
Release time is the critical day at work I learned so many new technologies in IBM very good management they care about your problems Work place is very friendly and so good work culture There is no hardest part as of now for me
Flexible Good salary Good learning experience Good work environment
There is not much cons being an intern other than sometimes the pleasure is high
Overall good company which heavily depends on the area and the office. Lots of working from home. Women are very lucky at IBM due to internal quota systems. Women with very little aptitude, skills or ability are far more likely to get promoted to team lead or management roles than men, in order to satisfy internal quotas with a number of departments (accounting, pricing, HR, GTS) now almost entirely consisting of women and managed exclusively by female management. Good work life balance especially for team leaders or managers who are women - no requirement to come to the office too often, encouraged to bring kids to school before 9 am and 10 am, collect from school between 2pm and 4pm. => effectively 4 hours work per day for 8 hours pay. Company pays 11 months maternity which is very good and prevents discrimination. There are women career development and support groups with attendance encouraged during work hours. And finally no discrimination policy with women often paid more than men.
Women friendly policies
Dated though newly refurbished offices, often inept management
Great people, and very flexible. Human company, and very goal oriented. A big plus is that they do not micro-manage people. However, depending on the department, be ready for long hours on month and quarter ends, prepare to work weekends and bank holidays. You can't take vacations when you want, and Christmas time is always the worse. It's good to create CV, spend there 2 or 3 years, but if you don't progress in your career during that time, move on.
Working from Ireland, the day starts at normal business hours but often finished late due to time difference with West Coast of US. I learned many aspects of big company operations at IBM. Management is hierarchical and upper layers are often remote. The workplace culture, in spite of the big-company backdrop, can be innovative and open-minded. The hardest part of the job is working across global timelines. The most enjoyable is the many opportunities to learn new skills.
Flexibility about work hours
I wouldn't recommend working for IBM. The management were poor communicators, mean and nasty to those under them. Expected you to take calls whilst at home and whilst on holidays, zero work/life balance. Basically they own you. Outwardly they try to cultivate a nice positive image however once inside the machine its a horrible place to work in
Good Exit Package
Long hours, Non-Existent Social Life, No career progression
good food in the canteen. high security means no phones allowed, minimum wages, no benefits, one must own a car or use bus 38 only. the place is very far from Dublin city center.
l used to live close to it
no benefits, work for 6 mnts a year only
Digital sales organisation, in the midst of transitioning into Cloud Infrastructure & Platform Services provider, leveraging extensive portfolio of existing complimentary software & services as unique selling point to gain market share. Reasonably flexible in terms of Work/Life balance. Overly complex matrix organization.
Good education opportunities
Long hours expected
I was a contractor but it is really hard to get a career if you don't enter as an IBMr. Nothing was free in the canteen and I had no benefits (only free GP). I was a quoter (I think this department doesn't exist anymore)
8 hours work no longer free weekend
no canteen, no health insurance and pension
