One of the best companies I have worked for. Having said that, stability is an issue as you are always under the gun with whether your will have a job in the coming year or not.

IBM used to be a premier company to work for. But over time, with the pressures of competition, it became a less desirable place to work. Restructurings and layoffs were around every corner. The politics of keeping a job became more of a concern than doing one’s job. I am not sure how that decline could have been avoided. It was just sad and unfortunate to experience. Leaving IBM after 25 years was a happy occasion. I did not like working for them anymore.
Good training and a wide variety of opportunities
Political environment where everyone is expendable.
Great company with a real future. Lots of high tech projects in areas of myself interest. With the reinvent of IBM lots of promise to come in the near future.
great culture with intelligent people to work with
IBM is reinventing itself so a few ups and downs
IBM allows for work life balance and a very flexible schedule. You are in an environment in which you are working with some of the most talented individuals in the industry.
Collaboration, Technology, Flexibility
Healthcare, Beaucratic at times.
IBM is a good company to work for. They have excellent education program and facilities, bleeding edge technologies and innovations. But they try to keep everything around average whether the salaries, the work environment, promotions take long time ....
I've been happy working with IBM for the past 10 years. There are plenty of demands and challenges that will bring out your best. The people care about one another and managers are trained to look out for their people.
There is no real work life balance in IBM. Depending on your program/project, management can be very shady and non supportive. I personally would not recommend my friends to work there. It is a gamble who you could get as a manager and I have seen so much back stabbing and lack of motivation.
