IBM is a big name in the it industry it is really sad to see how the place is being run here in Cairo, there is not clear vision for any team and accordingly no future or a good career path.
Salaries are very low compared to the market. ( specially for junior level)

IF you have a good manager ur life will be kinda good, if u have a manager that hates u for a personal level , IBM will be the worst work experience. I highly recommend that u ask about ur manager before joining since there is no real escalation path to complaint in case ur manager is not following the internal policy.

I have dealt with two managers one of them is an angel manager the other is just a guy who escaped from horrible bosses movie. ( no the naked lady :D )

IBM Egypt provides many resources to learn and it has many portals and access for external websites but this can be done only if you have not loaded by your daily tasks in your project and this really is a big challenge in IBM. This is because there is some entity in IBM is a time utilization oriented.

Most of my work to supervise my team and and check the progress of work and solve the problem and coordinate with client and vendor.
The hardest part is how many problem you face and enjoyable part is to solve it.

IBM promotes innovation through the employees, so you have the opportunity to share in patents, books, articles (scientific and non scientific), and volunteering projects.

1- The environment is very good which helps the employee to do his best.
2- I Learned a lot from working in the projects and also from dealing with such experienced persons

3- Most of the managers are very good person which appreciate effort and work done

4- The hardest part of my jobs is that as a tester, my role is the last phase before delivery, So I face much pressure at delivery time

5- I enjoy my job all the time, as always I am learning. Learning new business, new tools, dealing with different kind of people which increase my experience a lot

Working at IBM is a different experience, since it is project based I was exposed to different situations and gained different roles in each project. every new project is like a new job and a new opportunity to achieve success.
But what makes IBM so unique are my colleagues and friends. everybody is extremely helpful, most of them know what a team means and we support each other to the maximum.
Pros
Co-workers, opportunities
Cons
long hours, average salary, traveling process needs re-visiting

I enjoy working for IBM overall:

Pros:


- As a software support engineer, working hours are very predictable and rarely every drag on after hours.


- A global environment where it's easy to reach out to other IBMers around the world in different fields.


- Software support engineers get to work from home a lot even if it's in a different city away from the IBM office.


Cons:


- Salary is stagnant and you can go on a couple of years without a proper raise. I haven't received a decent raise in 4 years now.


- Absolutely bureaucratic! There's quite a lot of things that needs management approval. For example, I had an already APPROVED business trip (manager, manager's manager, manager's manger's manager). When I requested an HR letter, HR responded that I needed to send my manager's approval.

Advice to Management

Management must keep in mind that it today's world, which is saturated with brilliant companies that hire top talent, IBM must remain competitive to attract great talent and hold on to it. In the meanwhile, we're seeing the opposite trend, where great people leave IBM for other companies, be it because of a more competitive package, dropping morale and many other reasons.
Pros
Lots of opportunities to move around and work in different areas
Cons
Work life balance
