High paced work environment, very productive if you know how to handle stress.
Information Security Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 May 2017
High paced work environment, management expects alot from their resources. IBM is a place for creative, hard working IT professionals.

The best part of the job is working from home culture.

Relaxed company
System Performance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON28 May 2017
people there are very relaxed, but it is often hard to get everything you need because there is a lot of new things being done. Working internationally means making calls at various hours.

a lot of pressure, long hours
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 May 2017
I find that it is difficult to have time for yourself. The expectations are high, a lot of work, a lot of pressure. It might be a good job to start your career, but you might burn out.

Package Solution Consultant (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON21 May 2017
Good work life balance. Skilled Intelligent people to work with. However a mentally unhealthy manager from a country has spoiled the work culture in the project I work with. He should be thrown out of Canada to make the environment good again
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Bad managers have been hired from a country. He should be kicked out to maintain good environment

Terrible upper management
Advisory Software Developer (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON16 May 2017
Upper management is clueless and wastes the lives of their front line employees. They pour money into research that will never come to anything while letting their money-making products languish. The fact that IBM has now posted 20 consecutive quarters of declining revenue is no fluke. Their upper management is full value for it.

Client Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON15 May 2017
I really don't have anything positive to say about IBM, its' culture or the current level of incompetence, nepotism and operational dysfunctional leadership. Strategically the company knows where a=it needs to go but the people driving the ship are futile.
