Challenging work, flexible environment
Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 June 2018
IBM as a whole cannot be judged based on a single team. The team I worked on was fantastic. They gave me tasks that were challenging and allowed me to experiment and learn while taking the time to look and build strong solutions. There was no unfair pressure from management and the environment was inclusive and comfortable.This was an internship so my experience is limited.

Contractor (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON13 June 2018
They let a lot of their employees go and gave their positions to workers in India, for a fraction of the salary in Toronto. They do not care if you have a family.
Pros

Cons
never know how long you will be employed there

eCommerce lead (Former Employee) –  Paris12 June 2018
IBM FRance is currently hiring after years of decrease for technical population. Don't be attract by light - That is an illusion except if you - as Faust - accept to sale you to the devil

Management is vicious and won't help you to develop you only taking advantage of what you are carrying. If you dissatisfy ... then poor of you
Pros
Communities
Cons
Middle management

Consulting & Support Manager role (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON7 June 2018
IBM has lost the confidence and started laying off people without knowing what they are doing. Guys working in the project and making money gets laid off because they are going to digital era. This company 's senior most management has no clue and especially the chairman - didn't do anything for the company to build it up for the past 4 years . They need to replace the chairman. This is my honest opinion.
Pros
Lots of self learning
Cons
No encouragement or proper management (lousy approach)

A life Changing Experience
Executive Client Manager, Gulf Business Machine (Former Employee) –  Kuwiat1 June 2018
It is a quite an experience Selling an SMB / Enterprise solutions. You will develop multi business Languages and communication skills. You have to capture CEO’s vision and scale it down to multi layers to meet the IT director objectives and the end-user needs. In the same token, you need draw the same picture to your internal team and your internal line of business.
The fun part is you will test those skills in all your sales cycle from identifying stage to closing stage.
And you will never get board because each solution you sell is unique and has it is own challenges.
At the end you will be trained by the best so you can be the best at your trade.
