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.

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.

Good major technology MNC

Good experience in a technology firm. Opportunity to work on holistic solutions with real impact on organisations and society. Unfortunately at that time, middle management was poor and short-sighted disconnected from reality. They don't seem to have a grasp of cost-focused clients in southeast Asia leading to many lost opportunities. Best part of the job some colleagues, the structure and process (also the worst part of the job).

Management

I worked with IBM Malaysia under Manpower Solution Agency, meaning I'm not an IBMer , but i do handle high rank executive of IBM which are located in Singapore. My work is a Global Admin Administrator ,sort like Personal Assistant but my manager is not visible in my place we just chat , communicate thru email and by phone. I do all the admin work for them from calendaring, travel booking hotel accommodation and their expenses as well , and some other related issue that is connected with work. I do enjoy my work very much but there is a little growth in terms of stability since I'm a single mom and do need a stable work for me to able to support my son. That is why i do still keep on trying to look for a good opportunity outside , for I know I can still be an asset to for other companies who will hire me in the future.

环境很舒适,只是没有升迁机会

老板很好,工作环境很舒适,只是没有升迁机会,为了前进只能离开。 IBM是一间很系统化的公司,食物比较贵,地点虽然偏僻但是我还能接受。

Flexible working time is good, but...

IBM Malaysia is great work place for those who want flexible working times such as working moms, but not a good place for employees who want to experience enthusiastic and extensive tasks. It's hard to develop your own ability in this place.

Pros

Flexible work environment (work from home)

Cons

Limited job position available

Excellent company

IBM is is very good company. Typical day at work having support from the management and support from our team mates. Good sharing and work together.

limited work.

As usual service industry environment

Work is not so tough enough but work pressure is too high. Management response is average and work life balance is also average.

Flexible workplace

I love IBM. It has enough work challenges to keep you motivated but not too hard that you want to give up. Flexible to accommodate my family life and still pursue a career without biases. As always IBM encourages a learning culture that enables you to grow whether in your current field or other field of interest.
