IBM Corp.


International Business Machines Corp. is the world's largest provider of computer products and services. The Armonk, N.Y., company is still best known for hardware such as laptops and servers, yet for the past decade it has used its acquisitions to move into new software markets.

Meanwhile, its massive IT services business now accounts for the majority of its revenue. IBM's services business is the largest in the world, serving customers in more than 50 countries. IBM is also one of the largest providers of both business software applications and semiconductors and is among the market leaders in enterprise servers and storage product lines.

Its technology research centers have provided breakthrough innovations in nano, green and information technology. IBM divides its operations into five segments: Global Technology Services, Global Business Services, Software, Global Financing, and System Technology.


In 2003, IBM undertook the first re-examination of its values in nearly 100 years. Through "Values-Jam," a 72-hour discussion on IBM's global network, employees came together to define the essence of the company. The result? A set of core values that includes learning new skills, working across different disciplines and moving into new challenges.

In 2007, IBM unveiled Project Big Green, a redirection of $1 billion per year across its businesses to increase energy efficiency.

IBM provides same-sex partners of its employees with health benefits and provides an anti-discrimination clause. The Human Rights Campaign has rated IBM 100% on its index of gay-friendly organizations since 2003.


Culturally, on average, every IBM employee takes advantage of more than 60 hours of training a year. IBM offers competitive benefits, as well as performance-based bonuses for all employees.
