Team Lead/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 March 2017
I've worked in an IBM office for almost 4 years, and the work environment has not changed. The tasks are the same, the hours are the same, and anything that actually needs doing can be completed in minimal time while still being thorough.
My only beef is that my contractor company isn't big on providing raises. It's been almost 3yrs since my last raise. In simple terms, I work for IBM, but I'm not employed by IBM.
Great work/life balance in a very slow pace environment
Application Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 March 2017
Great work/life balance and professional environment. Good company name to have in your resume. Some oportunities to get involved in new projects with new technologies. On the other side, most projects move slow waiting on "acting busy" individuals with few or low interest. Very complicated to get a salary increase. You more or less are stuck with the salary you negotiated when you started, unless you change your position or get promoted. Most days you feel you could be doing much more things.
Professional collegues, convenient office location, serious company.
Slow projects and too much back and forth, excessive separation of duties, most projects move slow pushed only by meetings.
Senior Managing Consultant (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 13 March 2017
If you are looking for a breadth of education and experiences, IBM offers a lot of both. However, you do need to be a self-starter and self-promoter in order to take best advantage of IBM's opportunities.
Education; growth opportunities within the company
Fantastic support of staff. I loved working there.
Correspondence Secretary, Intellectual Property (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 March 2017
I feel very fortunate to have started my career with such a stellar company. IBM was very good to me. I resigned when my second child was born, because my husband and I decided it was more important for mom to be at home until the children started school. I don't regret our decision one bit. One cannot get that time back, and I feel it really helped my children that I was at home with them. But in a perfect world I would have loved to return to IBM once the children were in school all day.
Service Delivery Manager - IBM/JLL (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 March 2017
A good place for one to learn business knowledge and skills to advance your career in an IT environment. The ability to advance within IBM has been limited with the last few years as they have out sourced a lot of there positions.
Senior IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 7 March 2017
As a team lead, most of my work involves meetings, answering emails, studying problems, reading and writing documents. I choose when I want to have my breaks and lunch which works out well because I work when I most productive and stop when I am tired. The managements is pretty good and capable. The workplace culture is open, open to new ideas, and respectful. The hardest part of the job with a large company like IBM is the admin and the time it gets to get things approved. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people.
Asset Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 February 2017
The best of IBM is the work/Life Balance with the home office style and flexibility to manage you time. Is also a very organized company, you have procedures to follow and that makes your work a lot better. The Salary is usually less than the market value but it is worth it because of the flexibility. Job Security depends on the customers: no customer = no job which is not good, they should find another place for employees being such a big company. Management is overall excellent, with open doors policy to reach out second line managers if needed. Job Culture is one of the best I've seen, there is a clear culture and you don't have a doubt about it.
Environnement de travail produtif et très agréable.
Operator (Former Employee) – Bromont, QC – 19 February 2017
IBM a diffèrent facettes et un journée de travaille dans production est typique avec un ambient très agréable. J'ai pris de rester toujours proactif et aller vers les autres ! ainsi m'a prepare a un environnement disciplinaire, productif, sécuritaire et autonome. Mes collaborateurs étaient toujours des professionnelles très organisés. L'aspect plus difficile: J'ai pas trouver aspect difficile seulement des aspects d'apprendre de nouveaux défis dans un temps détermine. L'aspect plus agréable était faire partie d'une équipe dynamique et travaille dans un milieu innovateur.
n'il y a pas des avantages pour le personnel temporaire
