A good place to work at

IBM is a very good place to work at. Location of the office is in Cyberjaya, and since my job was in the night shift, the place is quiet peaceful to be around at.

It used to be excellent

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

Nothing much to comment about this company

I personally feel hp is better in terms of it's business processes for shared services. IBM is okay but it can get quite messy sometimes. If you're a Manpower staff, do not expect any perks or benefits to be given on top of your current benefits. It's just my honest opinion.

Supportive Management and Time Flexibility

The best part of the company is the trust given to its employees to manage their work schedule as long as deliverables are met without compromising on the quality and timeline. The management is also always supportive in ensuring employees upskill themselves to ensure they are well equipped to face the challenges in the ever changing environment. This includes encouraging employees to attend internal/external courses and providing the opportunities to job shadowing other roles.

flexi and work life balance

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.

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。

Very Good Company To Work With

A typical day at work is to work on the agile development tasks given, liaising with team members across the globe, i.e. Malaysia, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and USA. I learned a lot at IBM, both in terms of technical skills and processes. The seniors and mentors were very knowledgable and willing to share their expertise. The exposure that I got from working with big and important customers throughout the world in multiple industries, i.e. telecommunications and financial services, really helped to advance my career. The processes within IBM are well defined and really helped to shape employees' professional conduct. The managers were very helpful, especially in terms of being resourceful when unblocking hurdles faced in projects. The culture of mutual respect helped to create a conducive work environment, helping employees to succeed. The hardest part of the job is the many processes that have to be followed when executing tasks within projects. Nevertheless, I find that to be one of the enjoyable parts of the job, as it brings about structure in work. The other enjoyable part of the job is to be able to work in teams across multiple locations throughout the world, with members of the teams contributing in different areas of expertise.

fun & happening place to start off cust serv exp

supporting SG customers was a challenge being hospital customers was even taxing. Handing up to >100 calls per person on any given day was a good start to my career. Work & life was managed very well with team events & years team outings. Missing that work culture in these new places that I have been in.

Pros

big name

Cons
