It was tideous
UX Designer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 October 2018
Just a lot of icons with not much else to do. There was a lot of free time, but the staff seemed to just be getting smaller day by day. Also, the developers didn't take the UX designer's arguments that well...

Great place to work for little money.
Team Lead/Transition Focal (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON4 October 2018
Being promoted to a management position would mean that I would end up with a lower salary. The best experience you could get, but others will pay more for the same work. From what I could see almost double.
Pros
Work expereince
Cons

Software Sales Specialist - Analytics Portfolio (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON1 October 2018
IBM is a great company to work for. I have learned a great many skills and have learned a lot. Management and culture are great. The hardest part of the job is a lot of time is needed to succeed in any role at IBM and working very far from the workplace is a great challenge. The most enjoyable part of the job is the wonderful and intelligent people you have the privilege of working with and alongside.
Pros
Intelligent co-workers
Cons
Long hours

Global Cross Tower SDM (Service Delivery Manager) (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 September 2018
As usual...Management and leadership ought to be focussed .A good management and leadership is the key of success . Best resources may not be helpful if the leadership fails .Nothing much can be done without the right leadership in place. Leasership will be the key factor for any company to succeed and the leaders in the market are from the same pool and same attidue .As usual

Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 September 2018
- Good Management and learning opportunities
- Some pockets are good.
- If you get stuck with old management, who know the loop holes of the company, your career can take a beating.
- Beware of the 'pensioners'
- Remote work is good for some, but not so good for other's...choose wisely.

Archaic company that doesn't care about its employees.
Extreme Blue Technical Intern (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 September 2018
The Extreme Blue program is an interesting idea that is poorly executed. I was placed in a team of 4 interns (1 business, 3 technical) and given an idea for a new IBM product that we had to create a proof of concept for. There was too much pitching and arguing over product decisions for my liking. Working in a team of interns haphazardly hired and little oversight or support didn't work well for most teams. The Markham office is extremely drab and is located way too far from downtown Toronto. Outside of Extreme Blue, IBM is using interns instead of full-times because they want cheaper labour. A lot of the management doesn't trust/respect their employees. There are almost no perks, aside from the recent and extremely limited snack program. (You have to queue once a day in order to get a limit of 2 snacks.) The median age is probably 40~50. So many people have been working there for 15, 20, 30 years. This is not a place to have fun or work on something exciting. It's like the company exists to suck up to clients. I don't know how anyone has any enthusiasm for this company.
Pros
Low supervision, private enclosed cubicles, large campus/office.
Cons
Everything else.

Business Transformation Consultant (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON21 September 2018
Great training, interesting work, but you have to find a job on the job. For a young graduate, the support system need to be improved. The overall culture is pretty laid back. Working from home is acceptable.
