Great place to work, proffesional enviroment.
Product Specialist (Former Employee), Don Mills, OntarioAugust 8, 2015
Pros: lots of knowledge in the room, first rate equiptment
Cons: long shifts at times, changing shift times every 2 weeks was a bit hard on you at times
IBM Canada has a history of red tape, as expected of an older fortune 500 company. We were always learning as the software/hardware was in constant betterment. The management team were first rate, and the co-workers quite supportive and friendly. The unit had a "family" mentality that made teaching and learning a relaxed environment. The toughest part of a job like this is the constant technological changes, and trying to stay 'on top' of them, though this was also the most enjoyable part of the job as well.

I enjoyed working with IBM and had been working there for a long time.
People have a strong sense of ownership and thrive for improvement to better themselves, their product and their teams.

I owe a lot of what I learned in my professional career to IBM.

Sales Leader (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 6, 2015
Pros: Smart People
Cons: Long intense hours with lots of oversight
For most of my tenure at IBM I had a good experience and was treated fairly by IBM. Some of the smartest people you will ever know work at IBM. It was a pleasure learning from them and using much of what they taught me.

The last 5 years, the work day went from 8 to an avg of 12 hrs with lots of oversight by management.

Pros: Flexible hours, and a fun workplace with supportive management.
Flexible hours, and a fun workplace with supportive management. Managed a team of five co-workers in a low-supervision environment, whilst tackling smaller tasks, and ad-hoc requests. I personally developed into a team leader with the support and trust of my project manager.

professional environment where meeting SLA and maintaining high ticket resolution score are very important objectives
Deskside Support Technician (Current Employee), Burlington, Mississauga, BramptonSeptember 16, 2015
Pros: well known global company, lots of resources, many opportunities, dominant in some business sectors particularly servers, storage, cloud computing, analytics/big data, and hardware services
Cons: client account for the work load may be overwhelming, standards are lower overseas, customer complaints tarnishes IBM's reputation, restricted business travels, communications expenses.
It's a global corporation with many establishments around the world
workload varies depend on the client and the SLA with the client, typically heavy workload, may have to stay after work hours just to catch up or to prepare for the next day
Co-workers are typically professional but there is bound to be a few co-workers who are not as professional as they should be.
Management for the most part are there to make sure the SLA are met. Tickets are very important, and high ticket resolution score means a pat on the back/bonus. On the other hand low ticket resolution score means we need to talk.
What I enjoy here is that it's a global company and there are many opportunities and resources with IBM.

Great place to start your career
Software Dev (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONAugust 17, 2015
IBM is a great place to start your career but if you do not have a supportive manager, your career advancement options are very limited. With 13 consecutive quarters of declining revenue and dipping share prices, the only focus that upper management has is on shareholder value - not its employees.

IBM is lost within its own transformation
Project Manager, IBM Lab (Former Employee), Markham, ONAugust 14, 2015
Pros: smart and friendly colleagues
Cons: disintegrating values, morale keeps sinking, relentless cuts to personnel and expenses
It has become a cliche to say that IBM is not what it used to be.
In recent years, the values and integrity that IBMers held dear have been disintegrating at an alarming pace.
Upper management is only concerned with the bottom line, at the expense of everything else. More and more employees are being laid off in favour of cheaper, less experienced offshore or contractors. The lost expertise is staggering.
