The culture is to rotate staff in and out. Incentive to keep staff turnover with a five year pattern - in with the young out with the old. Management knows what its doing and installs middle management to do all the dirty work before they are let go.
part time employment
don't plan on retiring from IBM
It was a good work environment with great coworkers and management, but the company itself seemed a bit too itchy to lose employees to save money. I would not recommend working with IBM in general as a Canadian citizen since it is an American company.
While competitors were building new technologies and solutions for IBM's clients, the company was cutting cost and artificially increasing "Goodwill" in a quest to $20 EPS. The company is attempting to erase 10 years of lost opportunity, which is a very difficult feat in a rapidly changing environment. I hope they succeed and for the sake of the great employees working there, I wish them Good luck.
Flexible working hours
Top down management structure - do as upper management say or else
this was a contract assignment that offered very little learning/training or feedback on performance and little to no advancement track, low paying and all you did was sit the entire shift and wait for something to go wrong or glitch.
simple, easy, quiet work environment
very low pay, very little teamwork and hardly any training
IBM = outsourcing every possible job outside Canada, to make more and more money for upper management and shareholders. WHO CARES about CLIENTS. I feel pity for the clients who pay hefty amount for support and in response they get nothing.
Exposure to Enterprise Environments
They expect you to put in more hours and NOT PAY
I've worked in an IBM office for almost 4 years, and the work environment has not changed. The tasks are the same, the hours are the same, and anything that actually needs doing can be completed in minimal time while still being thorough. My only beef is that my contractor company isn't big on providing raises. It's been almost 3yrs since my last raise. In simple terms, I work for IBM, but I'm not employed by IBM.
Guaranteed daytime hours, amazing clients, easy commute
Not many raises, quiet atmosphere, not very busy
a typical day at work is a straight forward do what you have do and get it done. what I learned is to have fun pay attention and do your job right. workplace culture learn about each culture I think its good for everyone to learn about each culture. the hardest part of the job is looking after your job and your stuff so you don't lose it or you don't mess up and lose your job. the most enjoyable part of the job is being with your employees and working.
Its a good company where you can enjoy working with your co-workers, clients, vendors and with other people from different departments in an office environment. I have learned how to communicate with lots of different companies and understanding what their needs are including catering companies and the government. Every manger is a good manger and are easy to get along with and understanding. At times it was a very fast paste environment but at the same time not stressful. I am a multi-tasker and a team player and there isn't usually anything I cannot manage so I would say there wasn't any hard parts of the job, don't get me wrong, the job was challenging, and great but there wasn't anything too difficult that nobody couldn't deal with on their own. I enjoyed doing things on the marketing side and meeting clients and vendors which allowed m to bring out my outgoing and personable side.
typical day at work, dealing with client or customers over the phone, reset client account passwords and activation of accounts/ answer emails, create tickets according to the severity if the technical issues . I have learned a lot when it comes to providing solutions to technical issues to the client, most important is giving them a good quality of service, and the assurance that problem or the reason why they phoned will be immediately resolved. I am truly happy working with my co workers, they have been very supportive and good team player. I don't find the job hard, you will never notice if love the job and doing it with dedications and determinations. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you know that client is satisfied and happy about the service you offer to them and has good result.
A typical day would be answering to trouble tickets from users and resolving their issues. Also, from time to time there would be IMACS. I learned how to trouble shoot MS Office suites, troubleshooting pc issues either software/hardware or network. Management was pretty good and my co-workers was always there when I need help. Or I would sometimes help my co-workers if they need help with an issue. Hardest part of the job is when I come across a user who gives me bad attitude when helping the user out. Either because the user is frustrated or just isnt having a good day. I usually just look the other way and smile. Then I try to fix their pc issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is troubleshooting. I enjoy the challenge as to figuring out what caused the issue and how to resolve it.
