Pay was extremely low nothing else mattered. So many women cried because of the low pay it was deheartening. Many promises of higher pay for all of us but nothing came. Was there two years and many of us had master's degrees and four or more years of experience earning only forty thousand a year!!!

Pay and management
A good place to work as long as you could be kept billable to external clients. Opportunities to travel should you like it.Colleagues all try to help one another on the same projects, good cooperative environment.
good learning experience
longer work weeks, much travel required, pace can get hectic
A good job to "cut your teeth", but little opportunity to advance without moving into management. There was always a multitude of different challenges to face and this kept the job interesting. Oversight could sometimes be overbearing, yet is to be expected in an entry level position.
I enjoyed the challenges and successfully completing all my projects. I learned a lot. The IBMers I worked with were helpful, patient and understanding. My co-workers were great. My management team was excellent and very supportive.
No limit to learning. IBM has many ways for one to learn
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Worst place I've ever worked in 30 yrs of IT, thought it might improve but didn't. Very inexperienced management, no values or ethics. Model was created to bring offshore IT support back to US which was being demanded by US clients. Positions filled with inexperienced college graduates and H1B workers. They wound up adapting an offshore culture and utilized offshore workers as well. US companies want on-shore support.This is a viable opportunity but IBM just doesn't get it. The older US experienced workers they hired are being replaced by H1B workers.
mismanagement of a good opportunity.
Great place to work with good people. Management is hands off as long as you are on a project. But don't expect to do the job you applied for. Applied for entry level Java app developer position and has done little to no development and I was the lucky one as for application development. Others in my group that hired in with me for the same position hasn't done any development. Which may be ok for some but definitely not ok if you have aspirations of becoming a software engineer.
Decent pay and hours
May not be doing the job promised.
My typical week is flying to the headquarters of the client I am working for and collaborating with executives to help customize on configure the SAP software. We hold several meetings and address any issues that could arise along the business pipeline.
deal with a lot of different people in a fast paced atmosphere
Our days were very busy, but great. I loved working with the other IBMers. I learned about computers, ordering equipment, invoicing, working directly with customers and employees. Management is great! Very supportive and encouraging. I loved my job there, great place to work!
there really weren't any.
