Pros and cons

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good benefits and salary. Room for advancement. Long hours. Main complaint is they have other people in same company selling different products or services to same customer and they might tell you to back off selling your product as they want to focus on getting a different product into that customer. Pretty frustrating when you’re selling to a customer and told to stop bc they want to sell something different. Then you don’t get your commission and no apologies or compensation for it. I prefer a more medium size company.

FP&A Analyst in GTS (Pre Kyndryl)

I was a financial analyst in the FP&A team of GTS before it was spun off to Kyndryl. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and skills working in this place which make me really grateful. Here, i developed not just strong tech skills but also great work ethic such as continuous improvement, productivity, honesty, and integrity. Also, i was fortunate to work with the nicest and most supporting manager, KB. I left because of personal reasons. I regret it ever since - most importantly because i let her down because she needed me there when i left. I surely learn from this decision and my experience at IBM made me really strong as CPA now.

Decent Job.

Didn't hate it. Didn't love it. Team was very supportive of me, plus they had on-site parking (not sure if that's still the case). Do not drink the coffee they supply. It's disgusting.

Luck depending on your position

If you are part of a relax groups, you will not do anything and still get paid. Other groups are more fast paced so it is up to luck were you end up.

Relaxed working environment

Good internship experience. As a data science intern, learned and applied data science and artificial intelligence. Helped my team to develop data-driven applications by building data science pipelines, deploying machine learning and deep learning models, and exploring new frameworks.

Laid back, good work/life balance

Great place to work with many benefits. This is your place to work if you are looking for a balanced work/life balance and don't want to be stressed all the time.

It a very relaxed environment depending on your division

IBM in my experience is very relaxed in regards to work. It is also relatively harder to get higher band level roles as its very occupied by people who have been there for way longer.


Fun environment, free food

Gret technology but everything is slow

Great technology but everything is slow, good work-life balance. Compensation is average, colleagues are highly knowledgable and helpful. Growth is slow, only happens if you know the right folks

Not bad

Not bad but high workload with unrealistic number of hours that is hard to maintain a good work life balance. I’ve been with the company for almost 3 years.

Belle philosophie d'emploi, application moyenne...

S'efforcent de donner le meilleur environnement de travail possible (bien-être). Gestion opérationnelle disfonctionnelle, particulièrement dans les prévisions à court et moyen terme.

Poor culture and work environment

IBM Vancouver is not a great place to work, as you are expected to work 50-60 hrs/wk and raises are in the 2-5% range. Many of the partners are in Toronto, making it hard to get to that kevel here. Lots of travel. Great place to quiet quit.

Great firm with some excellent colleagues, and solid although somewhat inefficient processes

Excellent Colleagues, unlimited access to training. Standardized approaches to working. Can be bureaucratic. Some leaders are inspirational, however some are not. Choose who you work with.

IBM is a company that truly stands out in the tech industry. Their innovative solutions and commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology are commendable. Whether it's their cloud services, cutting-edge AI research, or decades of expertise in enterprise solutions, IBM consistently delivers excellence. The dedication of their team is evident in the quality of their products and services. I've had a positive experience with IBM, and I'm excited to see what groundbreaking developments they'll bring to the future of technology.

Environnement copetitif

C'est du travail manuel non physique. Culture des années 1980 . Côté salariale il y a des différences entre un homme et une femme pour le même poste et le même nombre année expérience.


Air climatisé


Tout est a la discrétion du gérant.
