House of Cards

Toxic culture, does not care about their employees. You are just a headcount they want to get rid of but refuse to pay you for retrenchment, so management will try to manage you out by playing games with you. Heartless and cold.

Average working condition and pay

Salary can be low if you don’t negotiate with the HR, so always negotiate for a higher one. Salary increment is also quite low for contract workers, need to give 2 months notice before resigning.

Flexi work hours

Extremely busy

Sound like a prestige company but many work processes. Daily work involves a lot of meeting which take up a lot of time, left you limited time to do your ground work. Work load progressively added w/o knowing. Definitely no work life balance




Long hours. Many meetings. Night calls. No work life balance

Lot to learn things but lot of work

Deployed as site engineer in one of the client. You will be the face of IBM to the very demanding client. You will learn a lot but prefer for busy hands on work on site. On call 24/7 anytime of the night you might go to site for troubleshooting.

Avoid it like the plague

Through the hardship - I bonded with a few good fellows …. Despite being tussled between partners and clients, I learned to endure and survive in a toxic environment

Productive and fun place to work, lot of learning opportunities are there

Great place to work with more self learning tools. Acquiring new skills is possible. Grab the opportunity when it comes. Well planned structure for individual growth

Management politics at manufacturing sector

Most manager doesn’t have much to do but some favouritism in this sector. Seems like Manufacturing sectors were more scared of bossesand highly political . Too many managers than employees.




Poor leaders creating frustrations mostly actors

Productive but competitive workplace, work life integrated

A stressful environment with some level of internal politics which may not be suitable for any individual especially for those who like to contribute to work and not looking for promotion to higher level.

- Work from home but most of the time back to office or site for meetings - Team effort was good & co-operative - Always wants things to be done yesterday - Going through many levels before approval for submission - Work & Family balance

Cohesive, collaborative, fast paced, friendly, high performance culture

IBM is a people oriented company, and constantly remind each employee of trust and personal responsibility, and integrity. We need to refresh the annual business conduct guideline education. IBM HR and functional management continually encourage all employees to increase their professional skill sets via eLearning. Every employee has to complete a minimum of 40 hours on-line learning per year. Quarterly performance checkpoint is systematically tracked in a HR tool.


work from home, management directed time-off


multi tasking, tight project schedules

A company focus mostly on results/numbers driven culture.

IBM gives the the employee the chance of experience new roles a part of career advancement. Most enjoyable part : Colleagues workplace culture : heavily numbers driven most of the time management : been fortunate under quite a few understanding bosses
