The people make it engaging and fulfilling or NOT

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical day can be extremely busy (overtime, stress) or completely silent (unknown, waiting for fire drill), or somewhere in between. Workplace culture is improving drastically - good on them. IF you work with great people the job can actually be fun. If you work with difficult people, the exact opposite happens. The company still uses antiquated processes within unfortunately, and shuffles people/strategy quite frequently. Overall a good place to work. Great is only when you land within a fantastic team.

Pros

People

Cons

Disparate systems, too many layers

It’s the walmart of IT

IBM provides cheap IT services to clients who think they will benefit from outsource the service to a 3rd party.The money making is done through their employees. The company will not invest a dime on employees unless clients pay.The plan is to reduce the amount of people to a minimum, have them work 24/7/365 and bill your client.The 40 hours a week will not get you far, no OT pay, your employee ‘ratings’ depends on the free hours you provide and you are compared to your peers every period.only the ones who provide free (many) hours may see salary increases or bonuses that are a joke.over the years, i saw people dropping like flies and rush to a hospital after being overworked.most companies sign the deal with IBM will not renew after realizing they’ve been had.You will find no love for IBM from employees and management alike.unless you have no others option.. keep looking

Pros

item to add to the resume

Cons

too long to count

Cut humans to make up numbers

dont care about you as a person, fired over 20k people worldwide during global pandemic. I learned that management doesnt care about your career and they fire top performers.

Good place to work

Good place to work, I was motivated every year while I was in IBM. I improved my skills with hands-on working and helped by a lot of colleagues. Most important, the culture and management style was very friendly and open enough for employees to focus on the job and learn. A great place to work with lot's of travel.

Productive and fun workplace with table tennis table

I enjoyed my time with IBM Canada. You will have work-life balance with IBM. Most importantly, depend on your department and team culture. IT related position probably will be the best fit.

Great place to work for work/life balance

IBM was a great place to work. My job was full time from home and I was able to do my job mostly autonomously. The management culture was supportive.

Managed projects and fostered great relationships with the customer.

Technical aptitude combined with speed of execution when a customer urgently is in need has helped my learn to systematically prioritize requests. Fostered great relationships with the technical team.

Flexible work time and challenging opportunities.

Because IBM is a large company, there is range of skills you can gain. I was asked about the area I want to focus on during onboarding (I said AI/ML), and actually all I worked on was relevant jobs. You'll get true work experience in modern technologies to build solutions for famous big companies.

n/a

While the role was rewarding and there is opportunity for advancement, do not trust that you will actually be given a role as promised even if it is in writing. When IBM exercises as "Dumb-Sizing" nobody is safe.

Collaborative work environment

Work environment where it is easy to make connections with team and sink in a cynergetic collaboration with your project team members. Organisation is very good with a vendor and delivery management practice.

Great team and flexible hours

I enjoyed my time and the team I worked with. Some management was remote so you didn't ever see them so that made it hard to build a relationship with your management team but it is doable if you work out a plan. Hours were flexible so as long your work was project based.

Productive and good company culture

While working for IBM, I was a member of an agile marketing team - we were four experts working for the same IBM business. I learnt a lot from my peers. They offer good work life balance - you can work from home if you need to. The most enjoyable part of my job was my team - they were really nice to work with.
