IBM Business partners are under agreement and can work from home, and offers a website development and advertising programme for Business Premier partners. Building. Clients is hard work and very rewarding. There are management level webcasts and very good training. I learned how to bring in major clients. The typical day is meeting clients emailing prospective clients of my client data base.
Buffett lunches for product events
40 to 60 hours a week
8 years losing market share and no change in the strategy. The only idea they have is to cut costs and layoffs. Also, they are changing the mix of the age on the company asking mandatory early retirement. Flexibility on the schedule. A lot of opportunities for learn new things but impossible to apply them. Very limited opportunities.
The internship was great and IBM has many opportunities to socialize with other co-ops. They have workshops around IBM Watson and you can also take online courses with IBM and you get badges for every course you complete. I did their data science badges. I really enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to anyone pursuing a career in Data Science.
Great learning platform and workshops
Some managers prefer more of a Laissez-faire approach -won't periodically check on their interns
Great place to work. Friendly environment. Tons of events throughout the year. Company supports staffs initiatives and always willing to help you advance in your career. Facility has lots of places to relax and snacks are offered for free throughout the building.
Its never a dull day at IBM. Always something to do, a new tool or drill to be learned, different technology and computer parts to know about. It was a really fun time absorbing and getting a chance to be with computer technicians who have been there for years allowing them to teach me about the system.

Jobs at IBM
in Markham, ON
Complex reporting hierarchies within Global business services team at IBM with expectations that weren't commensurate with ground realities. Once hired, as a consultant I was placed on a specific project for a finite time. The discrepancy between my salary and what IBM charged the end client as professional services fee was huge. The benefits of working as a consultant within GBS weren't that great - typical 2 week vacation with minimum health and dental benefits. IBM's coaching/employee review model was ridden with bureaucratic styled red tape - feedback on a consultant's performance was gathered from many bosses - Delivery manager, project manager, profile manager, team lead, and end client. This rendered the review process to be elaborate and ineffective - the model lacked the spirit and intent of coaching and feedback. Work assignments lacked collaboration, and employees were silo'ed into cubicles within sub-teams/teams/departments - an environment not conducive for teamwork.
I worked at IBM Canada a number of years ago where I sis two one month placement through a.temporary agency. The atmosphere was excellent they also had top-notch management persons. Work was very rewarding as I had recently graduated from a technical college and my skills were utilized very precisely. Overall I am very thankful for my time at this company and give it t
Excellent professional environment with continual learning. Competitive though! It is no place for slackers.
Supportive management; clear targets that must be earned; entrenched professionalism, coaching & mentoring. Flexible workplace and especially good for those with young families. ...one downside, bonding & socialization with the team is an expectation of many! One can hardly survive outside this circle of (usually) the 'boys' club'.
The day with the client is always productive as it is. Every day, the client will contact us or we contact them for any issues. There, we develop a relationship with the client, where they are used to our types of calls or the issues which are the typical things talked about. The hardest part of the job is when the client is not very vocal about the way the job is being handled. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the client is very informative about our activities. But the most part is the professional culture between both companies.
There is a fantastic e-learning platform and in classroom training opportunities. They ensure the teams are fully trained and have all the tools required to deliver top quality deliverables ensuring client success. Delighting the Client is the center of everything we do.
