IBM Finance Dept
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON3 November 2017
IBM was an exciting work environment. Best in class ERP system and technology. Short fall is they know they are the best and do not pay well. Regardless, IBM is the place to become a professional.

High expectations and low pay.

IBM has a long solid contract relationship with GOC. Most employees are under paid and over assigned. Intimidating management style. Employees are expected to provide their own equipment.
Pros
Access to contract positions.
Cons
Low pay, moderate benefits.

Contract Work for IBM
z/OS Systems Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontariom, Canada19 October 2017
As a contract worker, you have no benefits and are a consultant in name only. Your role is as an employee, but without the expenses. I wasn't even a person working for IBM, I was a contract worker, working for a Consulting company and was an Incorporated Company indirectly paid by the Consulting Company.
