Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 29 June 2017
This is basically a sweatshop for first level support techs. I would only recommend working here if you're just breaking into the field. The calls are timed, the time you're off the phone is timed, and even your washroom breaks are timed.

I have been working at RBC (More than 3 years) Pros RBC has a great atmosphere and it doesn't feel like a 9-5 routine work Work Life Balance is good with great vacation period and flexibility Salary is competitive with other banks Cons Can get hierarchical at points but I would say is still decent and somewhat multicultural at management level Slow advancement Advice to Management Continuously provide feedback Highlight path to advancement Career coaching with clear action plan
IT Specialist (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 15 June 2017
IBM = outsourcing every possible job outside Canada, to make more and more money for upper management and shareholders. WHO CARES about CLIENTS. I feel pity for the clients who pay hefty amount for support and in response they get nothing.
Customer Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 12 June 2017
Can be great in the right position/department, but that wasn't my experience. Hired as day contractor. Typical 8.5 hour day, unpaid lunch, 2 paid breaks 15 minutes each. Learned how to play politics. Work was boring overall, lacked intellectual challenge. Immediate management was OK, but poor at recognizing employee initiatives.
BBQ dog or burger w/ chips once a year.
Can be high stress, may be asked to skip breaks if busy
Excellent Company to work for to gain a wealth of experiences in a variety of areas
Advisory Technical Services Professional (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 2 June 2017
My experiences at IBM were enjoyable for the most part. I was blessed to be able to work from home the majority of the time, had excellent colleagues and the culture of rhe workplace was good. One area which was a concern was the proliferation of jobs being outsourced. IBM is a company in transition and as such there have been a significant number of layoffs in the past 5 years with me being one of them. However, I cannot say I disliked my experience. I was disappointed in not being able to move on in another area.
