I worked here in the mail room in 2018 on contract for 4 months. The lady that trained me was very nice, patient and understanding, but she eventually retired, and left. So I was left with a less than desirable so called " manager" who previously had absolutely NO experience in being a manager when I arrived there in December 2018. This person was a shipper/receiver who threw her weight around and was a complete bully and had absolutely NO professionalism in her work ethics. She gossiped about everyone, and had NO understanding if you made a mistake and didn't find solutions to helping you if you DID make a mistake! She was NOT a nice person to work for. She made the work place stressful and made it very unpleasant to come to work in the morning. She pinned other employees against each other as well. I WAS interested in working there full time (as I was there through an Agency) and she knew it, but made NO effort to help me apply internally, as there was a special protocol to applying internally. They DO NOT hire people from Agencies on a permanent basis either!!! I don't find this fair at all. She KNEW I needed that job and didn't do anything to make that happen for me. SHE ended up hiring someone externally while I was FULLY trained for the position. BTW...she was the 2ND Manager since I worked there for 4 months. Even the previous manager before HER wasn't great either, but he was better than her! Very disappointing to say the least.
Points positifs
Private dark room with reclining chairs, blankets and pillows to take a nap on your lunch break.
Points négatifs
Hard pressed to find parking if you leave the parking lot on your lunch break.

IBM has the benefit of being a gian company, in that sense you don't have to worry about it going under even under stressfull times. However this also means that you can get lost in the crowd. As 1 employee out of 300,000+ it can be hard to stand up and/or advance your carreer as there are many people looking for the same positions. You can also be affected by market shift/loss of businees that's not entirely your fault nad IBM doesn't have ny problems with dropping/selling products that aren't performing at the growth levels shareholders want.

pace of change is little too slow - since it's a large global organization and lacks focus / prioritization on Oracle Cloud market. There is lot of room for improvement.

I was brought in as a Backfill until they had there person transition from the old contract. Not what I was lead to believe. I was told it was a one year contract to find out it was for a month and half

The salaries and opportunity for movement within the company are excellent. However, the company is purely driven by numbers, and this is reflected in the style of management. If they would foster an environment in which the job could be performed correctly the first time, they would see a return to CSAT as well as employee satisfaction. Not to mention the $$ savings in running things efficiently. It used to be a pleasure to work at IBM, but since 2014 it began to slide downhill fast. :(

The hardest part of my job is that all my team members are across Canada and the US. Collaboration is made easy with tools like Slack, Webex, and Trello. Management is great to work with as they are always open to new ideas.

I have had some of the best managers in my career and also the worst at IBM. It really impacts my morale and motivation. Make sure you get a good alignment and clear expectations. If you can talk with work colleagues under the same manager all the better.

The IBM Ottawa Lab is an amazing place to work and I would recommend it to any of my friends. You are given immense freedom and trust to complete your work (without micro-managing). The people are great and the office is a very relaxing place.
Points positifs
Free coffee/snacks, great salary, great people, work from home, parking provided
Points négatifs
Need to start your own initiatives/projects to get noticed and to move up quickly.

IBM is a large company with many talented employees. However, the culture of consulting, where sales rules, has tainted the experience. Management constantly sells projects with farfetched milestones, that ends up putting the suffering on the delivery team. Could really use a large-scaled replan of company direction and values.

I worked as a technical writer for many years, including a transition period after my company, Cognos, was sold to IBM. From a technical writing point of view, both companies were very well organized with styles, procedures, templates, that made the work easier to complete. Most SMEs were keen to work with me.
Points positifs
Well-defined procedures
Points négatifs
None

IBM has lost its branding.... work is slow and repetitive. consulting is fun but you get no guidance (learn in the fly). it is a fake it until you make it environement.

Just a lot of icons with not much else to do. There was a lot of free time, but the staff seemed to just be getting smaller day by day. Also, the developers didn't take the UX designer's arguments that well...

Typical day begins with a stand-up meeting to go over current progress and ongoing tasks/issues and/or demos. Team had multiple managers and seemed to progress like molasses. As always there were a few interesting and fun people to work with alongside multiple non-interesting drones. Hardest part about the job was staying motivated and interested in the project. Software seemed incredibly boring to the average individual and was highly specialized/geared towards management staff. Most enjoyable part about the job was working with those team members who were friendly and outgoing.
Points positifs
Free coffee
Points négatifs
Rarely free milk to go in the coffee, boring software, slow and outdated management style
