Worked there for 39 years, it was like family. Saw many advancements in technology and weathered many storms as do most companies. There are many areas for advancement if you possess the necessary skills.
ISM Saskatoon office is well lead with very understanding management that relates to the well being of staff. It was a very enjoyable, productive one year contract that ended well with a very successful project implementation.
I used to work out of there Vancouver Island Office (thankfully moved away)...terrible management still exists, maybe worse....I do have current knowledge working right along side them for many years. Rude and uneducated managers with low-IQ fail to deliver - they're future is definitely uncertain to say the least...
Not much, if you don't mind be worked to you drop
Long stupid hours and shifts

There was always something to learn at ISM. You were teamed up with experts and had great opportunities to learn. The management was good but job security was not. The hardest part of the job was making sure you were never on the bench. The most enjoyable part was the job assignments provided.

I performed a lot of independent work with minimal supervision during my work term at ISM. I enjoyed the free range approach management gave me to do my job because it allowed me to develop my Excel and Visio skills and work at a steady yet unpressured pace.
Management let’s hard working people walk away, no appreciation for talented and responsible workers. Gives preference based on friendship rather than skills
Management doesn’t care about employees
In a typical work day you sit in a cubicle next to some great coworkers and answer computer support calls over the phone. The social atmosphere is great, the clients are great and overall the day to day experience is very enjoyable. If I had to choose my favorite part it would be the level of support you get from coworkers and managers. It isn't a hostile environment where you feel pressured to be concerned about performance or asking questions but a very hospitable place to learn! I would recommend ISM as an employer.
Great pay, relaxed environment, great coworkers
Lots of sitting, remember to go for walks throughout the day
Typical days included researching a variety of technology options, solving business technology issues, developing new approaches for delivery of services, and managing implementation of products or technologies as needed. As my role became more advisory over time billable hours declined. When times get tough, it is the billable person who represents value to an accounting team even though the amount of billable activity may be directly attributable to the decisions or ideas introduced by someone behind the scenes who does not bill the customer. Sadly vision and imagination are not easily quantifiable in dollar terms. This business struggles in the sense that the management is trying to go in a new direction but customers and staff still expect and want much of the same as before. Leadership struggles to market a cohesive updated vision internally and to its customers. Co workers are amazing, talented, and most, good to work with. All persons were accomplished and professional making work very enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was pinning down exactly what was being asked for by management, and prioritising in order to provide some perceived and quantifiable value to the business. Interaction with people, both internal and customers alike made the job enjoyable. Every once in a while, one of your ideas or approaches leads to a business win which is also very satisfying.
People, good benefit package
Lack of communication, employee relations
An excellent IT company to work with and a perfect place to work on top of the line server hardware and technologies. A very supportive management and with the performance based work culture, one can work his way through the different seniority levels in the company.
I Worked with many wonderful people here. I loved my job at first, however it greatly changed due to upper management decisions to cut back $$. In the end the environment became unbalanced, stressful and an unhappy place to work. A crucial job in the company was deleted and all its roles and responsibilities were put onto my department as well as duties previously done by supervisors without any wage increases.
I Could work from home sometimes.
A typical day at work could be responding to outages (internal or external), developing process or identifying gaps in process and then recommending changes to process to close the gap, or performing root cause analysis. I learned a great deal about interaction with vendors and all levels of the organization and worked with a wide variety of co workers internally, high level customers and our parent company. The hardest part of the job was putting forth tremendous effort on a daily basis long term only to be bumped out of roles by people who had more seniority but not necessarily aptitude or experience. The most enjoyable part of the job was the variety of tasks on a daily basis.
excellent wages and benefits
lack of opportunity to move up through the organization
