Share your experience to help others

The company has been changed to Concentrix

The project was Korean Airlines and the work culture is quite unique as it is 24/7. I learned on how to deal with customers more effectively and the hardest part of this job is rotational shift basis.

Opportunities to grow

work life balance is there , but still depends on manager. as long you do not misuse the privilege the management has given to employee, you are good. Opportunities to grow.

Pros

work life balance, fair internal movement opportunities

Cons

few employee benefits has been cut down through years, but i guess its the same almost everywhere for cost saving. Some managers do micromanage.

Good Place to work

I was hired by Manpower. It would have been better if I was given the opportunity to work direct with IBM. 3 years of remote support to Singapore Executives has helped me in my next career. If there was an opportunity to be hired directly, I would have stayed longer with IBM.

Super stressful and no work life balance. Affects health badly

During my tenure in IBM with the workforce division, was a nightmare. Too much work load for one person to handle. The person in charge during then, had to be responsible for handling new hires, appointment letters, exit interviews, work with managers, both locally and overseas, placement advertisements, reporting. Filing and conducting background check. NO WORK LIFE BALANCE.

Professional, trustworthy, integrity

My first job and I have nothing bad to say about the company. But like all competitive work place, change is never ending, hence the need to adapt very fast. You are expected to work independently and find ways and resources to perform your job roles.

lot of things to learn

Even though working environment in IBM is hectic, it will be a good beginning for a fresh graduate. Things can be learned such as basic IT troubleshooting, Server access, network issue, installation and also perform multitask.

Place to balance professional and personal life

Enjoyed working with IBM and like the work culture, convenience to work from home, interacting with colleagues from other countries. Managers are well supportive and there is no differentiation between permanent and contract staff which is really good to see.
