Great place to learn as I was on the internal side of support. Management was good for the most part. Work culture was good depending on how your manager was. Most enjoyable part of the job was learning as I was fresh out of school and my collogues.
Pros
lots to learn
Cons

If you just graduated from school and looking for working experience, IBM is the ideal place. It is a little bit over managed from my oppinion but would be good for young guy who need more guidance.

As the company works to reduce costs by laying off older employees, additional undocumented pressures are being put on remaining employees to do the tasks of the missing workers. New employees are not properly trained as the experience did not get passed on and tools/applications that are broken are not fixed or upgraded to be more efficient due to cost constraints.

Management where I worked did not value any employees, had awful pay for an "IT" job, and was understaffed so workload was meant for two people with one person doing it. Horrible handling of the 2013 Calgary flood (I was "evacuated" at shift changeover, literally MINUTES before flood water broke the banks), then the manager has the audacity to ask to come back to work a week later, while the city was still flooded, and travel routes were still hazardous. Did he want me to canoe into the city? Not the smartest of individuals. The only redeeming quality were the other coworkers.
Pros
Coworkers.
Cons
12 hour shifts, awful handling of emergencies, manager, construction site.

IBM sucks. More like service company of IT. Their pay sucks, no work/life balance, well I guess it depends on your department. Management sucks, they need to pay attention to workers.

Training Program was very helpful. The overall work environment was challenging and rewarding. I would recommend going through the Top Gun training program.

Good times are long gone for IBM and it is trying hard to find new ways how to make money, i.e. jump on outsourced service model bandwagon. Although humble IT engineers work hard to deliver aggressive SLAs often between way too many clients, products and projects, middle management provides no support or recognition. Morale was very low that time.
Pros
Lots of technology advancement
Cons
A lot of stress

Workplace environment was fun and management was always attentive and willing to lend a hand . Team leaders were always willing to share knowledge and cross train employees when new subject matter needed to be studied.

Compensation is bad. Nothing special about then. But a good place to start and learn the ropes. Don't know if the working condition has improved. They need to pay more.

Many IT contracts through IBM sent to India from Canada. Has no work culture or concern for employees. It is not transparent and management heavy. Not a friendly environment.
Pros
None
Cons
High chance of redundancy
