IBM simply doesn't care about its customers
Sales Transaction Support, Enterprise Execution (Former Employee), Montréal, QCApril 16, 2015
Pros: No heavy lifting, we got to work in a building with air conditioning
Cons: Prima donna IBMers and nightmare customers
I worked for IBM's customer service department at its Montreal office for just over eight years until April 2015 and have concluded that the company simply doesn't care about its customers. The sheer ineptitude of the accounts receivable representatives that they hire simply boggles the mind. In an inexplicable bid to save a few bucks, they balked at hiring just two more employees to assist its overworked, understaffed customer service department. I can see why IBM is losing customers, sales and market share.

The worst part of the job is dealing with the problem child customers and the prima donna IBMers. In a typical day I will handle 100 requests and 99 per cent of the time I get along fine with the person whom I am assisting. But its those one per cent of the idiots that can really make you punch the metal cabinet in frustration---my old desk at IBM has several dents from when I pounded it in anger.

Overall I liked my co-workers and my immediate supervisors and managers. The pay was better than most call centers. But there was zero room for growth or advancement --- I did the exact same job for over eight years --- plus there are the aforementioned prima donnas who take it upon themselves to ruin your day.

Strong employees, confused management
Senior Software Developer; Engineer (Current Employee), Markham, ONApril 10, 2015
Pros: Foos ball, pingpong, pool.
Cons: Long hours, demanding schedules, disconnected management.
Great and incredibly intelligent people working hard together. Management doesn't seem to know where they are headed though and often change course, causing many lost hours of hard work.

Bilingual Technical Support (Former Employee), Markham, ONApril 7, 2015
Pros: auto insurance, overtime hours, friendly staff, phone plan, good shift
Cons: long hours, wage cap
enjoyed working for the company along with great participating staff and management. learned how to keep up with new technologies and responsibilities. I would say the worst part about my work was adapting to new concept and technologies but good training was always provided and as part of the job we always kept up to speed.

Financial Systems Senior Sales Executive
Senior Software Sales Specialist (Former Employee), CanadaMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Job security, opportunity to advance
Cons: dealing with issues beyond my control
IBM opens a lot of doors when selling systems, however, one could never be complacent. Clients held us to a higher standard than other high tech firms.

This role involved working with many internal teams and levels of internal management. My personal policy was to always deal with other IBM employees with respect and trust. Honesty was always the best policy overall. Understanding my own role and the boundaries to work within was the best way to stay productive and on track. Being part of the big machine that made a significant impact globally was an exciting thing to be a part of.

Senior Support Specialist (Former Employee), Markham, ONMarch 23, 2015
Pros: amazing food in the cafeteria.
Had a great time working at IBM. Management and co-workers were easy to get along with. IBM offered me many great opportunities to expand my experience by giving me different responsibilities. The benefits and employee perks are among the best. They were very flexible with my work schedule and even the location where I would work in a day.

A typical day starts with team huddle. Work environment is fliexible and good co workers. Higher management is knowledgeable and helpful if needed.

Definitely did not enjoy working here
ADVISORY IT SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Halifax, NSMarch 14, 2015
Cons: Long hours, Favouritism
I felt like more of exploitation of the workers . For example
they give you 3 weeks vacation and then to meet your targets like resource utilization of 95 percent billing , you may have to work those 3 weeks when you come back from vacation which makes no sense.

In Halifax bedford location there is lot of favouritism.
(practice of giving unfair preferential treatment to one person or group at the expense of another).Especially in SAP ABAP team .
