good place
Computer Technician (Current Employee), markhamAugust 26, 2015
IBM's policies and management are very flexible when it comes to working remotely or accommodating various life situations (sick days, doctor visits, etc.). Management is encouraged to measure an employee by their work and impact, and not by hours spent at their office.

Amazing workplace, with highly professional and user friendly environment. It was an intense project with tight deadlines, yet completed with style.

It was a great experience with tough learning on some days, yet kept the work-life balance (still breathing) .

Great place to start your career
Software Dev (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONAugust 17, 2015
IBM is a great place to start your career but if you do not have a supportive manager, your career advancement options are very limited. With 13 consecutive quarters of declining revenue and dipping share prices, the only focus that upper management has is on shareholder value - not its employees.

Product Specialist (Former Employee), Don Mills, OntarioAugust 8, 2015
Pros: lots of knowledge in the room, first rate equiptment
Cons: long shifts at times, changing shift times every 2 weeks was a bit hard on you at times
IBM Canada has a history of red tape, as expected of an older fortune 500 company. We were always learning as the software/hardware was in constant betterment. The management team were first rate, and the co-workers quite supportive and friendly. The unit had a "family" mentality that made teaching and learning a relaxed environment. The toughest part of a job like this is the constant technological changes, and trying to stay 'on top' of them, though this was also the most enjoyable part of the job as well.

network support specialist (Former Employee), markham, onAugust 5, 2015
This job with suck the life right out of you and there is no room to grow.

I feel that this is the kind of place you should work if you have no ambition and want alot of free time at home for hobbies and flexable work hours.

Great for graduates to get paid for training.
