Great place to be ** IBM **
Incident Analyst/ Service Analyst (Former Employee), Markham, ONApril 2, 2016
Pros: Great team to be a part of
IBM was a great place to work and learn. The exposure was immense. While I started off taking technical calls initiallyt, my job soon saw many more responsibilities.

I was handling escalations, access requests , updating Knowledge database, handling Change Management and Problem Management.

My peers and management team was very friendly, supportive and always encouraged me to take up new challenges.

Great group of people in a large bureaucratic company
Business Consultant (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 14, 2016
Pros: People. Pay.
Cons: 1 type of clients. no support for upper upper management (Toronto or New York)
Company lost its "innovation" years ago. convoluted process in doing the simplest of things (expenses, travel, time reporting). Great part about IBM is still the people that work there, even though Canada is treated as the "oops child". No autonomy and everything is driven by the US. Even worse in the West, as decisions are also executed mostly in Toronto. Calgary office is 100% the best office in Canada, but lacks opportunities outside of oil & gas.

In IBM, I was responsible to lead a team to perform remote system integration projects. Every project requires us to carefully plan by communicating with our customers.

Very odd position as you were a contractor and needed to do everything that Employees did, however because you were not an employee you did not quali
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Saint John, NBMarch 7, 2016
Pros: they had a on line univeristy so you could take any course for free.
Cons: As a contractor the security was as long as the contract was, and you did not qualify for many perks as you were not an IBM employee
The day was never the same,with us taking over the back office duties from the closure of Argentina work was fast paced. Daily you needed to think on your feet let senor management know if outside the parameters, and they would add that situation to the parameters for daily work.

Great place to work at.
Excellent atmosphere.
Excellent benefits.
Amazing Colleagues.
Enjoyable work.
We've long been told our ability to succeed depends on our IQ, talent, education level, gender, job title, or when and where we were born. IBM turns that conventional thinking on its head to reveal that innovation can come from anyone, anywhere.

FULL TIME ADVISORY TECHNICAL SERVICES PROFESSIONAL (Current Employee), 3600 Steeles E, MarkhamMay 9, 2016
Jobs in IBM are not secure for local Americans / Canadians in regard to business
In general IBM have migrated jobs to cheap workers in India so local IBM jobs can be a temporary jobs until India workers get the knowledge and after this, local employees can expect to be laid off any time

tester (Former Employee), Bromont, QCJanuary 10, 2016
Pros: Good environment for extroverts, team spirit, decent pay
Cons: Terrible environment for introverts, union causes some injustice regarding seniority
The factory offers a nice social element and good advantages. Teamwork and socialization is pretty important to make it a good experience. Keeping to one's self will antagonize the coworkers who basically see IBM as an actual ecosystem.

Sr. Business Development Representative (Current Employee), Markham, ONDecember 29, 2015
Constant down sizing, no stability. Great education and training but borders on too much. You feel like you are drinking from a fire hose. Processes change so frequently it is hard to keep up. Hours were flexible however work life balance was beyond terrible and zero flexibility to work remote. Not ideal for families with young children.
