Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Great brand name and a good place to start a career until mid/senior level - then you move on.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Promotion by who you know, not what you achieve - excellent managing upwards (not so well downwards), excellent at eliminating management competition and political office wars

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

IBM GBS in 2009/10 went around twisting arms of senior folks to accept a new compensation package - less base salary but more promised bonus. Management is still trying to get senior folks to switch - with massive resistance

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Psychos, yes-men, hard workers, smart, dumb and some - The Borg

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Excellent

Employee - Manager

Yes because of the innovation, creativity, breadth and depth of solutions available - just in IBM GBS, or with other lines of business. But only when we have changed the leadership model to something more collaborative and empowered, less command and control. This US driven firm needs to learn how to lead.

Employee - Manager

As part of the wider IBM business, the push to report numbers (for shareholder value) overshadows the ability to allow creativity, empowerment etc. These behaviours cascade down, and limit the massive ability of the population to deliver innovative solutions for clients at all times.

Employee - Manager

Compensation improving hopefully with the change to the performance rating system, but waits to be seen.

Employee - Manager

On the ground, people work collaboratively, innovatively, creatively. However, senior leadership is so distracted by reporting numbers that it limits the ability to grow as fast as we need to. This creates a culture of blame when results aren't delivered. However, over the last 18 months in Europe there is a desire to see things improved, driven by some key senior leaders, and it is beginning to take effect.

Employee - Manager

Not as well known as it should be - people still believe IBM produces laptops, and we need to do more to highlight all the truly amazing things we have delivered.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Thought Leadership

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Open culture, respect for others however the culture have changed in recent past after Ginni Rometty.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Their reputation is declining these days.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Internal education programs were decent and the work, although at time political, was interesting.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Remote - working from home when not on a project was the norm which is not bad but it would help to have a nice flex office when its needed.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Agile, innovative, collaborative, and competitive

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

They do not do a lot of promoting from within. Definitely value outside and industry experience. Most likely to hit s glass ceiling.

Employee - Principal/VP/Director

Supportive and collaborative culture

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

High integrity

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Salary + bonus + stock purchase plan. Stock options given for retention purposes but not for all levels.
