Typical day at work is to meet with team lead first thing in the mornings to find out what is priority. Was product able to get shipped & if not why, then to make sure my shift continue in getting products out for our customers. Assign work for operators, making sure productions are complete & shipped on time. Hopefully there would not be problems like tool issues, shortage of workers, etc.. If all go'es well, contracts are met and production is done & sent to customers.
IBM recognize their hard working employees. Culture at IBM is as you are working for your own family. You won’t feel that you are outsider once you get hired the treatment is like you are part of them they treat you with so much of respect. Management is fair they listen to you of you have and concerns or ideas. Co-workers are very nice and helpful you feel you are working among your family members. They all treat you with respect and very professional. IBM is my all time favorite place to work! I Love IBM!
Good compensation/positive work environments/treat you with respect/ great Benifits
Work days were very busy. I learned many different skills and systems during my time at IBM. The management team I worked for was great. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with co-workers and the management teams at IBM.
Flexible work hours for personal life events
health care cost
I was lucky to have a great manager right out of college. He was highly supportive in what I was interested in and found great mentorship opportunities for me within the firm. We had many collaborative projects with Yorktown, and that further broadened my technical horizon. Unfortunately the division was a target for divestiture and that it why I ended up leaving the company.
Management is overstaffed, micromanages terribly. Only recourse for employee is through your management team which means if they are the problem you have no one to talk to or address issues with. Managers with zero experience in a department are regularly offered the job over someone with tremendous experience. Longer your in the company the harder it is to be promoted and receive raises. Constantly adding to job duties with no corresponding salary increases for often doing multiple job positions.
In general, IBM is a really good place if you want to learn work in a place where you can learn new technologies. Their pay pay at least when you start is competitive. However, unless you get a very high rating during the annual review your pay increase will be small or none. There is a lot of very smart people there and it is very hard to get the best rating unless your manager really like you. That is unfortunate because you can have an entire department that is very smart and it comes down to a judgement call in terms of who gets a higher rating. The culture in general is good. However, there are constant turnover because of the annual layofff's.
Good initial compensation. Good culture at the line level.
Hard to get a good rating. Lots of layoff's.
It was a very challenging and rewarding place to work. It's a great company to work for. You meet interesting people and it's always a learning experience.
Learning knew and fascinating processes.
Long hours and challenging procedures.
Utter lack of integrity among management. Toxic environment where solid engineering takes a back seat to cronyism and incompetence in management. Did I mention that the management team was singularly execrable ?
No longer work there.
Worked extremely hard for 30 years with nothing to show for it.
Cutthroat and geared toward the needs of the business with very little consideration for its employees
The first half of my employment with IBM was gratifying. While they focused on the needs of the business, they also focused on employee gratification and were geared toward supplementing a family oriented culture. Due to a shift in the competitive nature of the business, IBM shifted its focus to the needs of the business and transformed its workplace culture to a very cutthroat environment causing workplace turmoil that consisted of backstabbing, pay cuts, no overtime, and a reduction in benefits.
High Stress Great and Advance technology "the creation of computer chips" They didn't have a fair way to evaluate an employees worth. okay working equipment in multiple location in an extremely large Fab. when we were allowed to work overtime. then salary was comfortable
Working the holidays
Good benefits and pay. Management lets you do your job and doesn't get too involved. Stressful at times. They own your time. On-call 24 hours a day. Great people to work with.
Good benefits and pay
Always have the threat of being layed off surrounding you.
