Not the company it once was
GTS Consultant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 July 2016
A large bureaucratic company that lost its way and is now late to the game to transfrom itself - in order to save itself.

Huge focus on shareholder value with little concern for expendable casualties, like employees. They are cutting employees worldwide wiuth little regard for skills, experience or loyalty. Many jobs being sent offshore. The work enviroment is toxic as everyone os looklinmg over their shoulders wondering if they are next.

For a company that used to pride itself on customer and staff focus, this has all been lost.
Pros
Work from home, decent initial salary
Cons
No salary increas, No time or budget for education, Very few true leaders, Cut throat work environment, Constant arbitrary resource actions

Good Company to work with.
SAP Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 June 2016
IBM is a good company, has many good clients and one can work at ease.
Learnt lot of new things,
But
It has weird policies, for small things approval from top management is required.
one can't move from one countries IBM to another countries IBM, even if jobs are available.
And there are many more such things.
Pros
Fun Culture, Opportunities to learn
Cons
Can't take decisions

Service Desk Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON13 January 2017
Exactly what you would expect of a giant company. Piles of bureaucratic processes, zero connection to the many layers of management above you...but they run like a machine.
