Global Product Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Ashburn, VA – October 16, 2013
Pros: great work/life balance, teamwork, benefits
Great company to work for, good benefits, lots of work but great teamwork atmosphere. The team always covers your back. Great career path it you want to keep advancing but you can do the same thing if you like it and do not want to advance.
Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee), Markham, ON – June 29, 2014
Pros: cafeteria if you work the day shift and parking, it you live in the east end the commute would be good, work experience
Cons: low pay. no prospects.
A job acquired through third party companies. Survival job for me. Workload is heavy and the pay is low as a contractor. No room for advancement and no pay raise for anyone no matter what you do. Good for experience if you are just starting out other than that no real reason to take this job unless your skills are lacking or there is nothing available – more... out there. – less

Pros: exposure to leading edge technology
Cons: difficult to maintain any work/life balance and poor recognition programs
Over the years, IBM has improved it's yearly results by slashing benefits and compensation rather than invest in it's workforce. The latest example is when they reduced their already thin sales force due to poor sales results in a growing market. Our competitors, on the other hand, owe their success to better sales coverage and a higher ratio of customer – more... to customer facing employees. – less
IT Analyst (Former Employee), Markham, ON – June 11, 2014
My day to day responsibility is to help clients over the phone, e-mail and through messaging systems. I analyze the problems and try to find the solutions and send incident tickets to next level if it is out of my scope. I troubleshoot different applications, servers and mainframes to resolve the issues of the end users. I also check the status of the – more... account of end users and edit it or reset the password if needed. I enjoy to find the solutions for others to resolve the issues. – less
Desk side Support Technician (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – June 10, 2014
Good training, responsible from the get-go, good colleagues and good atmosphere. Bureaucracy
The company provides an opportunity for any chosen career and many changes to this along the way. The work they sign is compelling and interesting and often working to improve the world at large, not just make money. There are also opportunities to take days – more... out and give time back to the local community.It is easy to get lost in an organisation of this size and lose track of your progress. It is also very competitive and lots of 'game playing' occurs between senior employees etc.
the people are great and everyone is really supportive (for career development, personal issues, etc.)everyone works on client location so you don't get to see many people outside of your project. – less
The company's climate is going down. The business is totally driven by shareholder short term values.
User Experience Designer (Former Employee), Toronto Lab, Markham – June 10, 2014
Talents are not respected anymore, and a lot of good people are leaving the company. The management cares more about their interest and job security instead of advancing their staff and look out for their interest.
