For IBM ( in general, I am saying specific team which is exception)
Brand value, Career growth and onsite opportunities? earlier has had but now its degrading. but for IBM labs brand value is more
How is work environment and how efficient is the communication b/w teams or department? Due to huge crowd , Politics in Team is obvious, ( you have to make yourself close to supervisor to get better increment and promotion. no work and huge crowd so no visibility among team. if anybody wants peaceful life , IBM is best place but don’t except increment
Work pressure/Work – life balance. Very good. You don’t have to sit for late night unless you want to show your supervisor that you are very hard working.
Satisfaction with salary and quality of work. Not at all. You spoil your expertise.
What type of work they do: Product development, Services etc. Or if mix of these then what at percent? IGSI is doing services, IBM Labs doing prod development.
Job security. Yes better
Some positives and negatives of the company. already mentioned in point 2
Do you recommend your company to others? Yes or No and Why? I am not recommending. if has better jobs. it depends on what type of other jobs he has.
Fresher salary: 2.75 for freshers from good colleges. 3 lakhs + 40K +
Normal %age salary hikes: single digit.
Bonus is very bad.
