IBM has changed since the 70's
Business Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON30 November 2017
As usual with big companies, the focus is on profits and shareholder returns.

All the perks that existed when I joined in the 70's are gone. Job security no longer exists, part of the reason I joined IBM. My job no longer exists, and neither do the people who worked for me.

Many functional level decision were made without involving those with the knowledge of the business.

Canada was the poor cousin of the US. Whatever the US wanted, Canada had to comply, even if it meant significant job losses and loss of revenue.

The world changes and companies need to keep up. But do to that IBM has sacrificed jobs and loyalty.
Pros
Big company with a long history
Cons
Long hours with little work / life balance

Good stability, not a lot of room for advancement
Big Data and Analytics sales Account Exec (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 November 2017
IBM was a great company to learn from. Lots of great people to work with and learn from. A lot of changes happen weekly, monthly, quarterly and you have to have the ability to adapt. As they say one person alone cannot steer an entire ship.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interaction with the customer and trying to get your particular product/solution set to be a priority. Not only were you competing against your competitor but also your co-workers in each division of IBM.
Pros
CoWorkers
Cons
Too many meetings/anti-productive

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON3 November 2017
IBM was an exciting work environment. Best in class ERP system and technology. Short fall is they know they are the best and do not pay well. Regardless, IBM is the place to become a professional.
