Relaxed but not so productive

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

ProsThis review is for IBM Canada. Workplace is very laid back. People come in at 8:30 in the morning and leave around 4:30 in the afternoon, and even earlier if the boss leaves early. Everyone has his/her own little office and there is very little supervision as long as one finishes his/her assigned tasks on time.

ConsNot a highly intellectual environment. The work itself was bland and there was no strong motivation to really work hard and achieve something. Communication between coworkers was limited, as people tend to stay in their own offices.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees reasons to be proud of what they are making so they want to make a difference.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
