Tech Support Bench Tech (Current Employee) –  Markham1 October 2015
my favorite part about working at IBM is my co-workers and the management. My directors are very approachable and easy to talk to!
Great benefits, hands on training, very competitive pay rates and the people are just great! The corporate culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. The company mission statement is clear and it seems that all employees really are there to help people find jobs in their own way. Expectations and goals are high but the support is present to help all employees achieve set goals. Management wants to help their teams succeed.

Sales Dashboard - Sr Cognos BI Analyst (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, Ontario28 July 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.

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 June 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

Very odd position as you were a contractor and needed to do everything that Employees did, however because you were not an employee you did not quali
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NB7 March 2016
The day was never the same,with us taking over the back office duties from the closure of Argentina work was fast paced. Daily you needed to think on your feet let senor management know if outside the parameters, and they would add that situation to the parameters for daily work.
Pros
they had a on line univeristy so you could take any course for free.
Cons
As a contractor the security was as long as the contract was, and you did not qualify for many perks as you were not an IBM employee

Great group of people in a large bureaucratic company
Business Consultant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 March 2016
Company lost its "innovation" years ago. convoluted process in doing the simplest of things (expenses, travel, time reporting). Great part about IBM is still the people that work there, even though Canada is treated as the "oops child". No autonomy and everything is driven by the US. Even worse in the West, as decisions are also executed mostly in Toronto. Calgary office is 100% the best office in Canada, but lacks opportunities outside of oil & gas.
Pros
People. Pay.
Cons
1 type of clients. no support for upper upper management (Toronto or New York)

Incident Analyst/ Service Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON2 April 2016
IBM was a great place to work and learn. The exposure was immense. While I started off taking technical calls initiallyt, my job soon saw many more responsibilities.

I was handling escalations, access requests , updating Knowledge database, handling Change Management and Problem Management.

My peers and management team was very friendly, supportive and always encouraged me to take up new challenges.
Pros
Great team to be a part of

Business Analytic Consultant- SAP BI (Current Employee) –  halifax, NS18 January 2016
Minimal support from management. Flexible schedules, low salaries, expect a lot from you. Hard to find mentors. Bad culture to be part of. If you're an individual who likes to collect pay cheques and not care about anything else then IBM is best for you.
Pros
opportunities
Cons
no support from management. no innovative minds

Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto5 June 2016
The consultant culture at IBM is interesting. Staffing is primarily handled by direct managers or an individual effort, and finding applicable and billable roles is a skill you learn in itself.
