What we offer

 

At IBM you'll gain knowledge and experience like nowhere else. You'll also be challenged and supported to achieve everything you wanted in your career.

But don’t just take our word for it. When we asked some of our current graduates what words they felt accurately described working at IBM, there were 3 clear winners: innovative, friendly, flexible.

Salary

Our minimum starting salary for graduate roles is € 39,200 per annum.

Compensation

Sales and bonus plan commissions, rewards and other forms of earnings all give you the chance to add to your base salary. So, when our business exceeds expectation and you perform at the highest level, you'll have the opportunity to become one of the best paid in the marketplace.

Flexible hours & telework

We focus on achievement, not hours, and on our people, not projects. Our work concept allows work to be carried out where and when it is most efficient for IBM, the customer and you. This may be in our modern open-plan offices, at the customer's office or at home. IBM supports you in this with a modern workplace, Notebook and company mobile phone. By this you can better balance the demands of your job with your interests and home life.

Work/life Integration

The reconciliation of work and family or private life takes on a broad significance in our personnel strategy. IBM ensures the success of work/life balance measures by employing modern technologies and flexible work models. These affect aspects such as leisure and club activities, information, advice and placement services for childcare, care for elderly family members and home help.

Well Being

IBM would like to promote employee health and protect them from accidents and adverse effects on their health. The Integrated Health Center provides IBM employees with an attractive range of offerings for promoting good health and life (eg. health-checks, First-Aid-Courses, Stress-prevention Courses, vaccination campaigns, etc.)

Company Pension Plan

The IBM Austria pension fund offers financial security and protection for the risks of age, disability and death.

Employee Discount Programme

Our discount scheme has a variety of offers for you to take advantage of, including savings, discounts at a huge range of stores, etc.

Training

To make sure you get exactly the help and skills you need, we provide targeted training that includes a range of opportunities - from a formal mentoring/shadowing program and career development to peer support and professional development.

Whatever your question or training needs, you'll have some of the best brains in the business to consult: a worldwide collaboration of resources, experience and expertise that will help you achieve what you know you are capable of – and perhaps even more.

There are 3 core elements to the training you'll receive at IBM:

Skills development

Whether you're focussing on business or personal skills development, we have our own dedicated training organisation to help. There are literally hundreds of courses available for you to choose from. And it's not all about sitting in a classroom. You'll have the flexibility to fit your training in around you – with downloadable courses, podcasts and webcasts.

Commercial exposure

One of the most valuable things we can offer you is the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a hands-on, commercial environment, or 'on the job training'. You'll work on real projects, with real clients, and real bottom-line deliverables. But not to worry, your manager, colleagues and mentor will be there to lend their full support, enabling you to gain as much exposure as possible.

Certification

In order to achieve your career goals, you need to have the right technical and professional skills, as well as appropriate accreditation and certification for your particular area. We will help you achieve the appropriate certification.

Career development

Your manager is there to manage you on a day-to-day basis and oversee the projects you're working on – but not only that! Your manager is also there to help you guide and manage your career and professional development.

You'll work with your manager to create an Individual Development Plan. This will identify:

You’ll review this plan once a year with your manager to ensure your continued career development.
