Great place
Software Developer, DB2 Development Infrastructure (Current Employee) –  Markham Ontario CanadaMay 17, 2016
Great place to work at.
Excellent atmosphere.
Excellent benefits.
Amazing Colleagues.
Enjoyable work.
We've long been told our ability to succeed depends on our IQ, talent, education level, gender, job title, or when and where we were born. IBM turns that conventional thinking on its head to reveal that innovation can come from anyone, anywhere.

Lots of training, good salary and benefits, no career advancement
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.

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
Cons
Low pay

Team Leader (Former Employee) –  深圳市April 29, 2016
In IBM, I was responsible to lead a team to perform remote system integration projects. Every project requires us to carefully plan by communicating with our customers. I learned how to effectively manage project schedule and how to guide team members to finish their jobs. In addition, working with technical genius made me to widen my technical viewing and know how to lead a team to proceed project.

IBM is a flexible employer and have great management
FULL TIME ADVISORY TECHNICAL SERVICES PROFESSIONAL (Current Employee) –  3600 Steeles E, MarkhamMay 9, 2016
Jobs in IBM are not secure for local Americans / Canadians in regard to business
In general IBM have migrated jobs to cheap workers in India so local IBM jobs can be a temporary jobs until India workers get the knowledge and after this, local employees can expect to be laid off any time

Hard to advance. Very competitive internal environment. Good culture of learning so there are great opportunities to learn. However, compensation is relatively uncompetitive relative to the industry.

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJune 16, 2016
Unfortunately the more business IBM is involved in, the less it values its employees. There is no reasonable explanation as to why current valuable employees are being cut, while inexperienced and incompetent staff are given jobs.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
salary, climate

Great team !
Sales Dashboard - Sr Cognos BI Analyst (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, OntarioJuly 28, 2016
The team I am working with are all remote but the synergy and work ethic allow us to deliver on time. The only issue is one of uncertainty after each quarter reports - job security is always in question.

Great semi-traditional tech company with a nice office, good management, and great work/life balance
Product Manager/Dev/QA (Current Employee) –  Markham, ONNovember 1, 2015
IBM is a semi-traditional tech company. They offer most of the flexibility that comes with a tech company (Work from home, very flexible hours for appointments/events, etc.) and don't require you to work from home all that often. I feel the work/life balance is VERY good for most of the year.

Pay was very good for an internship.

Managers were all nice, respectable.

Some crunch time leading up to release but other than near releases, very little crunch.
Pros
Pool tables, gym, lounges
