Performance based company

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A full performance based company. It’s possible to see your former boss become your staff. High performers are well compensated. Nice workstations, a lot of space tochill and take a breather and de stress.

Nice

Nice to work here. I was working on a contract basis. Work from home when I worked there. I needed fast internet and they provided the laptop. Loved the team but there is no career advancement. Was laid off when I was told my contract will be extended. But then I was compensated for one month’s extra salary. So I’m fine.

Pros

Work from home, no jams

Cons

Long work hours, work on off days, work on odd hours

Great company for freshgads to gain experience

IBM offer great salary, and the benefit is average. Some role are project based, some are internal. For project based, it depends on the project’s management and client.

Flexible

Good colleagues and management. There is work life balance but possible to work during holidays and weekends when it is required especially during peak periods.

Good company for long term

Very comfortable company to work with and the benefit is given is very amazing. Never feel down when I work here. Unfortunately due to the business downturn, IBM GDC Malaysia must close down and I'm one of it those affected. At least they give lumpsum of money for us

Pros

Cons

Company closedown

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.
