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

IBM is a very challenging environment with alot of demands in order to progress, this make the work there more fun. The work life balance is not so good as I work on a regional level so clients are always awake somewhere in the region and need to fulfill their requests. It is a great company though in many senses of the word.

- A typical day of work would be me arriving at the start of my shift resolving all issues i get then going home

- Well through out my 2 years of Exp in IBM i did learn how to deal with all various types of IBM machines servers blade centers and troubleshooting them also SSR or on site engineer support is part of the job


- Management i can say it could be better and lets stop at that point there are too many small flows that makes you in the end not so comfortable in your work place


-Co-workers here are the best mostly the main reason person can show up to work at least , isnt it in all of the companies? :D


- Hardest part of the job is the shifts we are located in Cairo we support USA coast to coast which means during the whole week i have 0 social life and in the weekend we follow USA in Saturday and Sunday while our country goes with Saturday and Friday


The most enjoyable part of my job when i crack a new case handled to me and some of the birthdays parties we have :D
