IBM GPS is a fantastic place to work for, as long as you have good leadership to work for. I knew my journey with the company was stunted when leadership changed, and current so- called leaders started saying, oh we can't look for opportunities that'll benefit you because tgat will disrupt our hierarchy! Also, it would impact their org structure and they didn't want that as they'd have to go looking for fresh talent to replace a team member.
If you're looking for any similarities between IBM and IBM GPS you can stop in your tracks because there aren't any. But it's a place that offers job security, and doesn't make one feel sucked out at the end of each day (provided one works in a good team headed by a smart, empathetic leader).
The leaders were anything but. Most if them sadly, are just fortune hunters trying to get the best for themselves and their favorites at the cost of anything.
Work ranges from hectic to boring to stressful, depending on what one is assigned and who one is working with.
Flexibility in Working IBM is very good. We can work for home so we can balance work life, and learning it's up to your won .. if you want to learn you can learn anything and every thing. Politics will be there every where.. it's not a big deal if you ignore .. small things.. growth is only less.. what I feel.
Getting approvals take very long time in every stage.
The company is open to innovation and readity adopts latest technology. I love the fact that markets reliable, high-quality products and has a global base client base. Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various culture backgrounds, and we work happily in collaboration. I also like the employee re-hire policy here.
It was a big opportunity to be part of IBM, I can highlight that what ever they had given security to women employees it is really good,its innovative and on learning process is nice, if I get another opportunity to work IBM it is my greatest pleasure.
