Big Brother is watching you
PeopleSoft Solution Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 July 2017
Working for companies like IBM can be challenging. They, like other companies of their size, don't really know the staff that work for them. The work/life balance is stressed as something we should strive for in our live, however when approached with situations that is the last thing they want to do.
They were really good when it came to workplace morale that was good for them. Holidays like Halloween, Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving it was always encouraged for you to decorate your area (cubicle) if you wanted to. IBM was also good about lunch hour celebrations for those holidays as well.
The company was providing support to other locations in the world and shift work was the biggest issue. They did not understand the compensation that was to go with the shifts and thus staff were not compensated appropriately for hours worked.
Team environment is encouraged
Shift work conpensation misunderstanding.
