Great team !
Sales Dashboard - Sr Cognos BI Analyst (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, OntarioJuly 28, 2016
The team I am working with are all remote but the synergy and work ethic allow us to deliver on time. The only issue is one of uncertainty after each quarter reports - job security is always in question.

Not the company it once was
GTS Consultant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABJuly 9, 2016
A large bureaucratic company that lost its way and is now late to the game to transfrom itself - in order to save itself.

Huge focus on shareholder value with little concern for expendable casualties, like employees. They are cutting employees worldwide wiuth little regard for skills, experience or loyalty. Many jobs being sent offshore. The work enviroment is toxic as everyone os looklinmg over their shoulders wondering if they are next.

For a company that used to pride itself on customer and staff focus, this has all been lost.
Pros
Work from home, decent initial salary
Cons
No salary increas, No time or budget for education, Very few true leaders, Cut throat work environment, Constant arbitrary resource actions

Great opportunity for Job/Life balance. Flexible schedule to sometime accomodate long work hours.Impressive set of available technical skills.
Statistical Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bromont, QCJune 29, 2016
Working with a group of highly skilled technical people.

Liberty to manage your schedule, even if it does imply putting in long hours

Many occasions to develop useful and diverse skills (project management, technical knowledge/ support is easily available.)

Sometime project develop at a slow pace, but mostly due to ressources constraints.

Definitely the most enjoyable part of the job is to obtain technical results that yield concrete improvments
Pros
Open schedule
Cons
Long hours, rare salary adjustement

Good Company to work with.
SAP Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJune 21, 2016
IBM is a good company, has many good clients and one can work at ease.
Learnt lot of new things,
But
It has weird policies, for small things approval from top management is required.
one can't move from one countries IBM to another countries IBM, even if jobs are available.
And there are many more such things.
Pros
Fun Culture, Opportunities to learn
Cons
Can't take decisions

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJune 16, 2016
Unfortunately the more business IBM is involved in, the less it values its employees. There is no reasonable explanation as to why current valuable employees are being cut, while inexperienced and incompetent staff are given jobs.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
salary, climate

Strangled by Process and Controls
Systems Administrator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABJune 15, 2016
After years of layoffs and cutbacks we're down to staffing levels that cannot suffer more than one sick day. Stress levels are incredibly high. The expectation is always that your name is next on the layoff list, and has been so since well before the recent economic problems.
No cost of living raises. Adjusted for inflation I'm now paid several thousands of dollars a year less than when I was hired.
Basically this company should no longer be thought of as a leader, but rather as an entry level position.
Pros
Work from home! That's about it.
Cons
5 year old, 14" laptop. Culture of treating people as capital.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  TorontoJune 5, 2016
The consultant culture at IBM is interesting. Staffing is primarily handled by direct managers or an individual effort, and finding applicable and billable roles is a skill you learn in itself.

Mixed bag experience
Content Designer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCMay 28, 2016
There are so many products and divisions, you have a fair bit of opportunity to try out different things. There are a lot of wonderful and talented people, but they're overworked and, frankly, exploited.
The relatively mediocre pay was compensated for by their flexible work policy, which was recently cancelled.
They have some interesting ideas in how they're going to revitalize the company, but they are not great at execution and too burdened by the pressure to cut costs... constantly.
Pros
lots of talent and products
Cons
slaves to the stock price
