Helpdesk Technician (Former Employee), Markham, ONJanuary 5, 2015
There is a tendency working at IBM to feel like one is being under-trained somewhat. A worker has to spend lots of time self training.
But learning the job is still exciting because one gets to know the procedures much better.But apart from that the working environment at IBM is very good. A a monthly basis there would be cake sales, IBM product sales, and general jean days.

It is nice experience to work with IBM Canada
Test Lead (Current Employee), Calgary ABDecember 31, 2014
Pros: i have numerous appreciation from the higher management in this role and accomplishments.
Cons: sometime we had to compromise our family and daily routine for the project requirement, but that is well noticed and appreciated.
My day starts with sending summary project report to the Client Management. Then I go to office and start with day to day activities.
Also I need to address any Quality related queries by Business analyst or the Business Users.
In my current role we have successfully implemented 13 applications in the production during the Christmas and encountered very minimal issues. I have learned about Mainframe and Unikix in the current assignment. Also I have gathered additional experience in team handling over the offshore and as well as onshore.

Giant leader falling behind
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), MontrealDecember 1, 2014
Pros: possibility to grow, innovation
Cons: long hours, little recognition, bonus maxed at 3%, uncompetitive wages, administrative roadblocks
The first few years were very gratifying. A typical workload for a Senior PM was one of 8 to 12 projects.
The change in top leadership led to a culture shift which remains to be defined. The subsequent changes led to the end of work-balance initiatives, corporate identity and serious cost-cutting measures (sarcastically re-baptized client-cutting measures) have left many unhappy campers throughout the GTS network, clients and employees (perm & contractors) alike.

The typical day started at 8am. During which we have a brief meeting with the Supervisor. Then, everyone is dispatched to their workstation. I have enjoyed learning online migration. Moreover, the supervisor is very kind and easy going type of person.Always available for any assistance. With my colleagues its a very positive and collaborative environment.Overall, as the job requires repetitive actions, there is no major challenge.The most enjoyable is that its feels like family.

Promises work / life balance, but doesn't deliver!
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 5, 2014
Pros: good salary & benefits
Cons: poor management, terrible attitude towards employee needs
Good salary and benefits, and on the surface offers many employee programs to further career and training, plus flexible working hours and locations. HOWEVER: should you actually request access to these programs or increased flexibility, they then refuse all requests. Beware if you have 'invisible' disabilities such as mental health issues: you WILL be discriminated against.
It's a pity that a company that has built it's reputation by respecting employees and being a leader in equal opportunities, has fallen so far below the standards you'd expect. Working here has been the biggest disappointment of my career.
