The company has very complex organization. It takes time to know all the processes and policies. Finally, it is a good company. The company provides good training for your career development. It also has many line of businesses to transfer to other job role.

Incident Analyst/ Service Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONApril 2, 2016
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.
Pros
Great team to be a part of

Great group of people in a large bureaucratic company
Business Consultant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABMarch 14, 2016
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.
Pros
People. Pay.
Cons
1 type of clients. no support for upper upper management (Toronto or New York)

Enjoyably small work compared to compensation and time allotted to do it.
Deployment Technician (Former Employee) –  GTA, ONMarch 13, 2016
Would prefer to work here again and also trying to join back in after contract ended.

The work is usually small and starts later so its easier to get to, usually left alone to do what you need to and head on home.
Pros
Small work and good hours
Cons
Command Center is very hard to get a hold of

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
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.
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

Strategic Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONMarch 4, 2016
There was very little return on investment for time put in, and little to no recognition for a job well done and accomplishments achieved. There was no employee morale and no team spirit, no one felt appreciated and everyone felt as though they were being taken advantage of.
