First 3 years was very acceptable. Last year and a half was soul-crushing.

I worked at IBM

Pros

Good benefits. Good job security. If you're on the right team it can be a good place to work.
There are some good people there and some are very knowledgeable. If you can work with the right people you can learn a lot.

Cons

Don't expect to get any raises, not even to keep up with cost of living.
You will always hear the same excuse, "there is no money for raises" even during times the company is posting record profits.
Don't expect the company to look out for your best interests. I worked through a bout of hard chemo therapy with no recognition for my sacrifice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your employees efforts. Try and see past profits and see people as people.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    The IBM office in Markham is a behemoth, looks more like a shopping mall than an office. THe IBM brand defined carries prestige with its name. The training courses available are good.

    Cons

    The downside is the lack of career growth, when times got tough, they really really squeeze the life out of you by doing multiple peoples jobs at once. In addition working at such a massive organization, it is very difficult to gain visibility. You feel like a serial number, one of thousands. Common for many interns to work here, good advice and brand name but not a long term career option.
