Investors more important than Customers or Employees
Cloud Channel Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  North AmericaAugust 22, 2018
Investors more important than Customers or Employees. Toxic work environment. Decisions not made by first line managers.
Finance and legal run this company.

Average Workplace
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cyberport, Hong Kong IslandMarch 26, 2018
Was probably not exposed to the whole culture as was working in the Laboratory. Allows excellent work life balance which is the most enjoyable part of the job. Upper management (Directors and VPs) are really tough and it is quite difficult to gain exposure. The hardest part of the job is not having very much job security. I have however learned a lot while working for this company
Pros
Excellent work life balance
Cons
pay

declining spiral
Client Technical Professional (Current Employee) –  North AmericaJanuary 9, 2018
following rather than leading in a rapidly changing technology landscape, alienating both customer base and employees. customers fear their technology investments are in danger of becoming obsolete, employees fear a resource action from on high.
Pros
flexible work/life
Cons
compensation stagnant or shrinking, lack of confidence in management

Good place for young people to start their job
SENIOR BUSINESS SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Hong KongMay 23, 2017
Good company which has a lot of valuable solution compare to others IT vendors. However, management doesn't has knowledge and insight to drive business, only drive numbers for their own job security. Small group game and does treasure people value.

Increasingly less employee friendly
Portfolio Marketing Manager, North America (Current Employee) –  North AmericaApril 28, 2017
IBM is doing more and more to make life harder for their employees. Layoffs and other forced separations are commonplace, and experienced employees are being replaced by recent college grads willing to take lower pay.

Great place to learn
Business Unit Executive North America (Current Employee) –  North AmericaMarch 6, 2017
IBM is a great place to learn. Manangement has grown to large and to many folks at the top not adding to the bottom line. Many of these executives blame this on sales execution. While they set the policy.

Great brand, Ability to have multiple careers in the same company.
Pros
People
Cons
Too many folks at the top of organization, Inability to flex the team and empower the field, run by lawyers and bean counters
