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

Depends where you work
Financial Accounting Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 24, 2016
strictly depends on department where you work there are huge differences. There is department with 10 employees quitting every month and there are departments where you can work from home 4/5 days a week with no pressure. very unbalanced job roles
Pros
can be great
Cons
can make you quit in a week

Decent workplace with decent pay
tester (Former Employee) –  Bromont, QCJanuary 10, 2016
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.
Pros
Good environment for extroverts, team spirit, decent pay
Cons
Terrible environment for introverts, union causes some injustice regarding seniority

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.

Deskside Support Technician at Encana (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABJanuary 6, 2016
Management is generally good and does not micro-manage.
Can be blind to employee faults.
Co-workers are surprisingly excellent.
Working hard and taking pride in my work come natural, putting up with people who don't is difficult.
Getting reconized by the client as a productive and valued contributor is always nice.
Pros
Regular Pay

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.

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Tennessee, QCFebruary 24, 2016
It is good starting position but in the end you will find out that nobody cares about anything. Management is just fallowing numbers no personal attitude. Full of bureaucracy more job depends on filling forms than actual doing something

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.
