    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have recently been hired through the IBM graduate program and was selected for a position at Bluewolf as my first rotation. Coming in I didn't know what to expect or much about Salesforce in general. However, during my first couple of months I truly couldn't have asked for much more. The Melbourne team is EXTREMELY welcoming and supportive, and are always willing to lend a hand no matter how busy they are. The approachability...

    Cons

    As a result of being recently acquired by IBM there are still some merging pains with the consolidation of systems and processes. Due to the aggressive hiring, it can be tough to find a seat in the Bluewolf area when everybody is in the office. IBM grad salary & bens are satisfactory nothing really missing but nothing outstanding either.

    Advice to Management

    Send a request to IBM for more seating space. Provide guidance to the wider IBM regarding departmental culture and support, especially for grads with things such as structured learning. Keep up the welcoming culture.

    I worked at Bluewolf full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - PEOPLE - it's very rare that you get to work with a great bunch of people, who are supportive, fun and hardworking at the same time - CULTURE - the above says it all, culture is defined by the people and their values

    Cons

    - Compensation and Benefits could be reviewed. Would love to see more health benefits such as fruits at work or gym/health allowances - Kitchen necessities in the office, such as cutlery, sandwich press, and coffee machine! - Fun team initiatives/activities to be more often

    Advice to Management

    Management has gone through some changes in the last year, and there are clear results of good change! Want this to continue.

    I worked at Bluewolf full-time

    Pros

    - Able to work autonomously. - The delivery teams are highly capable. - Affiliation to Salesforce as a partner keeps the Bluewolf brand relevant.

    Cons

    Management - The management team in ANZ are very good at telling you what you want to hear. The reality is, that there is always a hidden agenda. There is no genuine interest to help their team. Great companies succeed because of their people. Attrition levels are high based on the lack of trust with management. It also doesn't help that the IBM management team have taken over.

    Advice to Management

    Joining and leaving Bluewolf, was the best move I have made in my career. It made me realise what I DIDN'T want in an organisation. The local management team need a reality check (maybe more training on how to be better leaders), and overall, cut back on all of the red tape that plagues IBM employees so you can be an agile organisation. Re-train your staff with relevant material, deliver services that the market actually...

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The corporate culture at Bluewolf is the thing that has really stood out to me. It is a dynamic, collaborative, fun, and high performing workplace environment. No two days are the same and opportunities plentiful. There is an abundance of support and team emphasis.

    Cons

    The coffee machine is our of order.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead by example and infiltrate the wider IBM culture.

    I worked at Bluewolf full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Agile, flexible and high level of autonomy

    Cons

    - Bank too much on existing clients, focused on milking them because they can't sign anyone else. - IBM integration is bad for culture, losing it's essence and reason as to why it was a good company. - Trying to find a way to remain relevant with Salesforce in an ageing and legacy ridden organisation. - Management keep employees in the dark - little information and no sight of the bigger picture. - Too much fluff...

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Bluewolf sets the bar high for Salesforce Consulting agencies. Since joining a year ago, I have been given numerous opportunities to expand my professional skill set. The culture at work is phenomenal, and genuine friendships are formed in all aspects of the business. Management is approachable and supportive, and employees are trusted to work autonomously - productivity and engagement are high. I have never worked for...

    Cons

    Senior management has large numbers of direct reports, and are at times hard to get hold of. Hoping that the integration with iX does not dilute the Bluewolf culture that is a huge contributor to why staff turnover is so low.

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - extremely good on boarding - great culture - well documented and well thought out sales and delivery collateral - autonomy and trust coupled with challenging targets - cool client pool - IBM benefits and support without the big corporate issues - being part of IBM iX is simply amazing

    Cons

    - sometimes the overlap between IBM and Bluewolf processes can be confusing (this is a teething issue of the acquisition) - less of a con, more of a risk: if the Bluewolf culture gets too diluted by big corporate politics in IBM.

    Advice to Management

    keep Bluewolf a seperate world[place culture, along more strongly with iX

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are down to earth. Everyone is willing to help. Excellent location close to the station. Covers every month phone bill.

    Cons

    Not a very spacious working place. Hard to find a desk when everyone turns up. Could be a bit hard to do programming when everyone is talking to clients.

    Advice to Management

    If there’s a quite study room would be great. More beers needed for Fridays.
