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.

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.

Many things have changed in Big Blue, not for the better.
Its no longer an exceptional MNC to work with. When the shareholders are more important the people that make IBM, you know that its heading for disaster.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Emphasis on cost instead of ppl

IBM promotes work life balance and dynamic environment to the employees. As this is a multinational company, the strategy, business direction keep on transforming and look out for great opportunity. Due to its rapid change, an employee required relocate to grab opportunity outside Malaysia. Learned a few systems and skills across different team. Cultural and employee background diversity has opened up my mind about their working culture and positive attitudes cultivated by them.

Lots of fun with your team, and lots of employee initiatives and programs such as "think 40" for learning and developing new skills. Long working hours, not much flexibility, but depends on which department you work in.

A company that provides positive career development and working environment that promotes efficiency and effectiveness in the staffs. As the reporting structure is an upward reporting, the team has high visibility to CFOs and Controllers. This is also the most challenging part of the work. However, having co-workers who practices team work, knowledge sharing among team members are encouraged, which have also made works simpler.
Pros
Meal allowance for working overtime
Cons
Closings happen in weekly and quarterly basis

Need to work directly with other region that we are attached to. Allowance are paid according to region we support. Meetings are always held to update team members regarding job progress. Employees are allowed to work from home when necessary. There are always good team members and subordinate to rely on when facing issues and problems with clients. The challenging part of this job is to stay awake during the night (Malaysia Time) since I was attached with the USA time region. The best part is the relaxing work environment despite the need to achieve the daily target.
Pros
Can claim Personal Holiday Expenses
Cons
Hard to change team and no career advancement
